BRIDGEWATER – Is there a better way to celebrate the grand opening of a new convenience store than to hold a hoagie-building contest?

Wawa will mark the grand opening of its store at the corner of Union Avenue (Route 28) and Chimney Rock Road on Friday with a hoagie-building competition among the Bridgewater Police Department, Finderne Fire Department and the Finderne First Aid and Rescue Squad.

The emergency responders will face off to see who can build the most hoagies in three minutes. Wawa will present $1,000 checks on behalf of the winning and runner-up teams to the charities of their choice.
