Wawa asking customers for exact change due to nationwide coin shortage


For those of you that don't carry any cash (and coins), you may be in the clear. But if you are someone that likes to pay for your daily coffee from Wawa with old fashioned paper money, you may have to find exact change next time you go to the store.

"Like many other businesses around the country, Wawa stores have been affected by the shortage of coins nationwide, as reported by the Federal Reserve," Wawa told WPVI Channel 6 Action News in Philadelphia.

According to WPVI:

Wawa is now requesting customers to pay with credit, debit, the Wawa mobile app or exact change, if possible.

Also starting Thursday, customers can exchange their rolled coins for bills at select Wawa stores. There will be signs up at the stores directing customers.

Customers can also "round up" their purchase to the nearest dollar and donate their change to The Wawa Foundation.

Wawa says 100% of all donations will be given to local charities supporting causes related to health, hunger and everyday heroes and local chapters of the USO.
