Wawa Celebrates Anniversary By Going Back to the ’80s with ‘The Goldbergs’
You may notice something a little different when you stop into your favorite Wawa store in the Garden State. Starting today you may feel like you've taken a trip back in time to the awesome '80s.
The convenience store giant is celebrating its 57th Anniversary and to kickoff Wawa Week all stores are flashing back to the '80s and teaming up with the ABC series 'The Goldbergs' for their special celebration, according to 6ABC.
'The Goldbergs' TV show, now in its eighth season is all about a loving (and very loud) 1980s family living in Jenkintown, Pennsylvania. Wawa is a staple in the show and is featured in lots of episodes.
Wawa's President and CEO Chris Gheysens tells 6ABC,
"This past year has no doubt been a difficult one for us all, so, as we remember the 1980s with fun look backs and throwbacks, we are thrilled to give back to the community we serve in more ways than ever and to celebrate this milestone of Wawa and The Wawa Foundation. Happy Wawa Week, everyone!"
Starting today, when you visit a local Wawa you'll be welcomed by the sounds of the '80s, and you also may catch video clips from 'The Goldbergs', which will be featured at all fuel pumps. Wawa is also giving you the chance to win some goodies from 'The Goldbergs' by going to wawa.com/goldbergs.
You can also help out the Children's Miracle Network by buying a Wawa coffee on April 16th, and 'The Goldbergs' Garlic Cheesy Chicken Parm Hoagie during Wawa Week. The company will donate up to $100,000.
