JAMES CITY-The new Wawa convenience store and gas station in Lightfoot will open on June 10.
A general manager at the store confirmed news of the opening of the new Wawa, which is located at the intersection of Richmond and Lightfoot Roads.
Construction of the Wawa convenience store first began roughly two years ago. Wawa replaces an old Exxon gas station.
Since parts of the new Wawa are located within both James City and York counties, both counties’ Boards of Supervisors had to approve the project.
The new Wawa includes a convenience store with a food market, sandwiches, coffee, and more, as well as a gas station.
This will be the third Wawa in the Williamsburg area, with one located further down Richmond Road near the College of William & Mary and another on the other side of town on Merrimac Trail.
