Menu screens activated inside Wawa opening soon in Gaithersburg

The opening of the first Wawa in Montgomery County is that much closer today, with the activation of the animated flatscreen menu boards inside the convenience store at 405 S. Frederick Avenue in Gaithersburg. Through the windows, the screens could be seen cycling through menu items and promotional messages. 

Outside the building, fresh asphalt has been laid down on part of the parking lot area, and striping has been painted for parking spaces and crosswalks. Gas pumps have been in place since last November, and remain taped off for now. Wawa continues to show no dates for this, or any other new Wawa store, on the "Store Grand Openings" page on its website as of this writing.


  1. Very nice! This Wawa is going to be so crowded with Gaithersburg High school students at lunch time 😊When I went to Gaithersburg High we had a 7-Eleven right across the street, it used to get very crowded 😳

  2. There are going to be problems with access from SB 355. The road and intersection with Education Drive are not being updated.

  3. Between 2/27 and 3/1, they've announced that the Wawa will open on 3/7 at 8am.
