Largo leaders approved adding more site where the city's first Wawa is planned recently.
The Wawa at 8910 Ulmerton Rd. is part of a larger 11-acre retail project. Plans for the shopping center include a proposed Walmart Neighborhood Market and possibly two more retail buildings.
Some Largo Patch readers look forward to see the project through, while others question the need for another gas station where already there is a Thornton's on one corner and a Rally on the other. Here's what some of them had to say:
David: "The site was being demo'd about 6 months ago and now the equipment is idle. When do they plan to break ground on it? I wonder why they included the old movie theater site in it. Maybe with the Walmart grocery store as the anchor it might bring in someone new, who knows. It will be nice to see progress on this corner though."
jenny: "well, there are already 2 big stations on other corners... they are going to come into town... put in so many stations and then start closing them! like Sweetbay, Checkers... always think MORE is better... can't hardly afford gas as it is!!"
joann jackson: "Promises, Promises"
