Sheetz opened a new store in the Pittsburgh area on Aug. 11. This new location sits at 3457 William Penn Highway.
Excitement for this store has been heightened with a contest for the first 50 people in line when the doors open. These lucky customers won a $100 Sheetz Z-card, which could be used to purchase anything in the store.
The buzz about Sheetz has gotten people out of bed to camp out at as early as 4:30 a.m. at stores recently opened in North Carolina, West Virginia and other cities in Pennsylvania. Customers can play games to win prizes and enjoy samples of Sheetz food and beverages.
“People are lined up and waiting when we get to the store to cut the ribbon,” said Stan Sheetz, president and CEO of Sheetz Inc. ”We can’t wait to serve new customers and work to give them the best ever experience in our stores. We love to see them being as excited as we are to open.”
Doors officially opened to customers Thursday morning at 11 a.m. The 6,000-square-foot facility offers fresh food items like the MTGo! and Shweetz Bakery lines of sandwiches, wraps, donuts and muffins, along with the signature MTO line of Angus beef burgers, premium grilled chicken sandwiches, freshly made salads, French fries, onion rings and more.
Sheetz Bros. Coffeez, a full-service espresso and smoothie bar staffed by a trained barista is also available at the new store. Customers can order hand-made specialty coffee drinks including lattes, cappuccinos and mochas – hot, frozen or iced.
“Sheetz has a legacy of innovation, customer focus and employee development,” Sheetz said. ”The company’s mission today is on meeting the needs of customers on the go by providing fast and friendly service, quality products in clean and convenient locations.”
Sheetz is also proud of its tradition of giving back to the communities in which it operates. Especially important to the organization is finding ways to be involved with today’s young people. As part of the grand opening, the company will make a donation to Special Olympics Pennsylvania. Sheetz has been a proud supporter of Special Olympics since 1992, making monetary and product contributions as well as providing event volunteers.
Sheetz family-owned and operated c-store chain currently operates more than 395 stores throughout Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland, Virginia, Ohio and North Carolina.
