Sheetz to Open Store on Pugh Street in Fall 2015

The late night food scene in State College is about to add a major player and Pennsylvania staple. The Altoona founded convenience store chain Sheetz will open up a new location in Fall 2015 at the former site of Duo Nightclub at 129 1/2 S. Pugh Street in downtown State College, according to information obtained by Onward State. Sheetz plans to officially announce the new location tomorrow.

The opening will be part of a new store concept Sheetz is rolling out to create stores with all the Sheetz’ staples you know and love without the gas station component. The Pugh Street store will take up 5,000 square feet and feature its traditional Made-to-Order selections, additional hot and cold ready-to-eat items, and a new tray service concept for those who wish to eat at one of the indoor and outdoor seating areas. A store with the same concept is scheduled to open in Morgantown, West Virginia this March. Of course, like every Sheetz, it will be open 24/7.

“The new Sheetz concept is the fulfillment of a goal and our relentless pursuit of innovation in the food and beverage category. It will create new way for our customers to enjoy our food in a casual dining experience,” said Emily Sheetz, Director of Special Projects. “Our pioneering spirit has led us to this point. This is the next generation of Sheetz.”

The new Sheetz will also be one of its few locations to offer beer for take out and will feature its famous “beer cave” concept (which is exactly what you think it is). The location is expected to create 35-40 jobs.

Duo closed its doors in 2013 after a long string of legal issues came to head and the building has sat vacant ever since. The new location will be Sheetz’s fifth in the State College-area and the first in downtown State College.
