Wawa is still coming to Vienna, but not to the former BP station site at Maple Ave and Park Street in Vienna, as reported earlier.
“I apologize for confirming the Maple Ave and Park Street address,” a Wawa spokeswoman said via email. “This was incorrect and is not a location we are considering. We are still actively looking for new locations in Vienna and look forward to sharing confirms plans and locations as they take shape.”
News of Wawa’s plan to come to Vienna was greeted with jubilation on social media from the chain’s fervent fans.
“As a Philly native, I am thrilled to hear this!” said a reader on the Tysons Reporter Facebook page.
“Our new go-to lunch spot,” wrote another.
Tysons Reporter initially asked Wawa about plans for the site after hearing from a tipster and, subsequently, two local business owners that they heard that the company would be opening a new store there. It is unclear where else in Vienna Wawa may now be looking.
