Sheetz increased its store count in the Wheeling, W.Va. area yesterday with a second store location.
The new store is located at 6 Cabela Drive in Triadelphia. Employees celebrated the new store with grand opening festivities yesterday, including a ribbon cutting ceremony at 3:30 p.m.
West Virginia Governor, Joe Manchin III was among those who participated in the celebration.
“This has been an area we have been a part of for five years now and we are excited to grow and become a bigger part of this community,” said Stan Sheetz, president and CEO of Sheetz Inc, which operates more than 350 convenience locations throughout Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland, Virginia, Ohio and North Carolina. “The people of Wheeling and Triadelphia have been loyal to us and we hope to continue to give them the best we have to offer.”
The 5,500 square-foot convenience store 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 available at the store. Customers can order hand-made specialty coffee drinks including lattes, cappuccinos and mochas, available in hot, frozen or iced varieties. Sheetz also offers premium brewed self-serve coffees made from 100% Arabica beans in a variety of flavors, such as Breakfast Blend, Serious Dark Roast, 100% Colombian and Hazelnut. As always, customers place their food and specialty coffee orders at touch-screen order kiosks. A surcharge-free ATM and variety of retailer gift and phone cards also are available.
As a part of the celebration Sheetz will be making a donation to Middle Creek Elementary School. The money will be used for the B.A.M! Book of the Month Program that provides more than 300 students with free books each month during the school year.
“Sheetz has a long time tradition of giving back to the communities in which we serve,” Sheetz said. “It’s important to us to be involved in the development of children through educational and recreational activities.”
