As Wawa continues to expand, the Philadelphia-area natives who've dispersed around the country wait patiently until they get their own slice of home in their new towns.
On Wednesday night, it was Washington D.C. residents who got the good news.
The convenience store chain is holding an event for developers and community leaders on June 13 to announce the D.C. location, according to local news outlets.
The Washington Business Journal reports the store will feature a "unique" design created for the capital, but it's still unclear where exactly it will be or if the location will offer gas.
The unknown details were secondary to those who've missed Wawa since moving to the District, however, as just the news of them getting their own store was reason enough to celebrate on social media.
It's almost like the geniuses at Wawa were like "we know Trump is terrible so we got you, DC"— Shawna Ohm (@ShawnaOhm) May 17, 2017
So wise. So kind.

The real bombshell today is that Wawa is coming to DC. The company plans to save space by simply swapping places with my abs.— Tony Stark (@NatSecElitist) May 17, 2017
