Brunswick and Jesup, Ga. — Convenience store retailer Wawa has broken ground on two new stores in the state of Georgia. Scheduled to open later this year, the stores will be located in Brunswick and Jesup. The new shops mark the beginning of the brand’s expansion plans for southern and coastal Georgia, where it plans to build and open 26 stores over the next five to eight years. Future locations in the state include Hinesville, Pooler, Waycross, Bainbridge, Tifton, Valdosta and Albany. Wawa plans to invest roughly $7 million in the development of each store. Originally established as an iron foundry in 1803 and later evolving into a dairy business and then food market and convenience retailer, the company currently operates more than 1,000 stores.
