Affordable Lock & Security Solutions, located in the distinctive-looking Medieval structure, had already moved from its longtime home on U.S. Hwy. 27/441 to make room for a Wawa gas station and convenience store at the intersection of U.S. Hwy. 27/441 and County Road 466 in Lady Lake. Affordable Lock & Security Solution has set up a temporary facility at 127 West Griffin View Drive. That location has been the home of a shuttered service station.

This past November, the Lady Lake Commission discussed the relocation of the icononic building.

Wawa is assisting Affordable Lock & Security Solutions in its relocation.
