County’s First Wawa Opens in Gaithersburg

Montgomery County has its first Wawa — now open in Gaithersburg. 

The convenience store/gas station opened its doors Thursday at 405 South Frederick Ave.

Customers lined up for the grand opening, which included a T-shirt giveaway for the first 100 customers.

“Judging from this line of people behind me, we’re going to be very busy,” said Wawa Area Manager Chris Maccubbin. 

“I used to go to the Wawa in Frederick,” said lifelong Gaithersburg resident Michael O’Connor. He said, “Everyone in the town is excited.”

Mayor Jud Ashman and the city council proclaimed it “Wawa Day” in the City of Gaithersburg. The grand opening event featured a “Hoagies for Heroes” hoagie-building competition between police and fire departments.
