This article presents information about a book which chronicles 200 years of retail staying power. Historian Maria M. Thompson and retired executive vice president Donald H. Price have written "Wawa," published by Arcadia Publishing, to detail the history of the 200-year-old dairy and retailer using images from company archives, local collections and family scrapbooks. Thompson did the necessary research on the first 160 years of Wawa's tenure, filling in the last 40 years from his own experience, while Lori Bruce, the company's manager of communications and public relations, served as the editor.
