Crews Begin Demolition On Pugh Street Sheetz
Your dreams of a Sheetz downtown are one step closer to becoming a reality. Crews began demolition on the soon-to-be Sheetz on Pugh Street today.
The new location will be Sheetz’s fifth in the State College-area and the first in downtown State College. Public Relations Manager Tarah Arnold said they plan to open by late fall.
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. Emily Sheetz, Director of Special Projects, called the new stores the “next generation of Sheetz.”
The 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. Arnold said there will be an upper balcony and a patio on the ground floor.
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). Of course, like every Sheetz, it will be open 24/7.
