CHADDS FORD, Pa. (AP) - A suburban Philadelphia township has pushed back its decision on whether Wawa will add beer to a store’s shelves.

Concord Township’s board of supervisors was scheduled to vote Tuesday on an application to let Wawa sell six-packs at one of its shops. But the vote was rescheduled to Aug. 4.

It’s unclear why the decision was postponed.

The verdict would be limited to the Delaware County shop and would also require state approval. But it could be a game-changer for a company already entrenched as the region’s one-stop shopping destination.

Acme, Whole Foods and Wegmans already have approval to sell beer in the area.

Wawa doesn’t sell beer in Pennsylvania, but does in Virginia and Florida.
