The Wawa on 13th & West – Closed for repairs.Gotta have a Wawa? If you are living or visiting in Ocean City that means you are headed to 34th St. for the foreseeable future.The popular 12th St. store, closed since sustaining water damage during the recent blizzard and subsequent flooding, will be closed “for a short time” according to a Wawa press release. As a result, Ocean City previously was served by three Wawa locations and is now down to just one. A third location at 4th and West was closed several years ago, demolished and the lot sold to developers who built new homes there.The 34th St. Wawa’s hours have been extended to 24/7 to better serve the needs of the community, according to the statement from Wawa’s corporate offices.The round-the-clock hours will continue until 12th St. can reopen, Wawa said. But how long will that be? The Wawa statement said there was “no structural damage” to the building. However, sources close to the situation said initial work at the site revealed other issues which Wawa felt should be addressed as long as the store was already closed.The sources indicated the “short time” the 12th St. store would be closed could extend well beyond February and possibly deep into April. Some even feel the store could be shuttered even longer.The interior of the 12th Street Wawa as it appeared on Tuesday.In the meantime, many Ocean City customers are going out of their way to keep the cash registers humming at 34th St. Many North end and downtown people are taking a ride over the 9th St. Bridge or the Longport Bridge to patronize two of the Somers Point Wawa locations.
