One of Wawa's distinctive red coffee cups is seen with the chain's Blakeslee store, in Monroe County, as a backdrop. Wawa is planning to build a store on Wilkes-Barre Township Boulevard (Route 309) in the former Kmart plaza — long known as the Blackman Plaza and now known as the Union Center — officials confirmed Friday. Roger DuPuis | Times Leader WILKES-BARRE TWP. — It's official: Wawa is coming to the former Blackman Plaza off of Route 309 in Wilkes-Barre Township. The plaza, which has been re-named Union Center , formerly housed a Kmart that has been vacant for years.
