    I remember going to Jersey as a kid and they had Cumerland Farms.

    We had 7/11.

    I watched Time Travel Bong on Comedy Central a few weeks ago and WaWa was mentioned many times.

    Around here, we've got Sheets and Circle K. They do a booming business.

    This has been my favourite for many years, but alas, you can see from the signage, is soon to close. I doubt it will be replaced by another store (there is another similar establishment right next door) and regardless, will almost certainly not be replaced with another proprietor that gives visiting dogs treats.

    I love WaWa. But lately, they've gotten too big IMO. Their well deserved success has driven away other good convenience marts.

    I bet you could skip it for a year and go back and he would know exactly why you two were there. For his doughnut, of course !
