History

Wyomissing first opened as a freestanding building near the Broadcasting Square Shopping Mall in December 2000. The store debuted with the Studio C Alpha, featuring a 32M Chuck E. Cheese animatronic and prop characters. It it still at the location today. This location did not receive the Phase 4 remodel during its almost 23 year run, but between October 2011 and November 2015, the awnings and CEC letter on the exterior were replaced with newer, modern ones seen in the Phase 4 and Phase 5 remodels. Between December 2016 and September 2017, the 1998 C Cap sign was replaced with the 2015 Waving Rockstar Chuck sign, completing this store's modern exterior remodel.

The interior would see an update probably around this time too. This would not impact the interior of the store, wall art wise. All of the gameroom and showroom walls were painted yellow, green, orange, and blue, which were the same wall colors from Phase 5. Interestingly, all of the 1990s wall decor (Must C TV award posters, Andy Warhol pop art posters, and Sports and Parody posters, Postcard posters, etc.) weren't removed during this remodel. This made the Wyomissing store half modern, and half old at the same time, which is interesting. Wyomissing has stayed this way since then. Their Studio C Alpha stage has changed since the 2000s though. The outfit on the Chuck E. Cheese animatronic was either the late night outfit or the Cool Chuck outfit when this store first debuted, but later on their previous outfit was replaced with the newer Avenger outfit by the 2010s. The Bird and Pizza Phone prop bots were removed from the stage between May 2022 and sometime in 2023. The apple TV on Chuck E.'s desk (not to be confused with the streaming box) has been red, but it's unknown if it has always been like that. Wyomissing still has the Studio C Alpha, the Phase 3 wall art, and the Phase 5 wall colors and exterior today as of June 2024. There is currently discussion about this store being relocated, so the 2.0 remodel has been postponed indefinitely until the leasing is sorted out.
