Another Sheetz Is Coming To The State College Area

You’re going to have to put down your MTO sandwich or coffee next time you want to count the number of Sheetz in State College because you’re going to need both hands.

The Centre Daily Times reported today that a sixth State College Sheetz will open in the Patton Town Center on Colonnade Blvd. The last Sheetz erected in State College was just last September when the Pugh Street gas-less storefront opened downtown, offering students another place to grab a quick bite and the convenient beer cave.

The grab-and-go eatery and gas station is tentatively scheduled to open late in 2017, but there’s no real timetable for the project yet. The store will be 6,000-square feet and Sheetz store selector Brian Dinges told the CDT that it will resemble the nearby Sheetz on North Atherton by the Wal-Mart.

“State College is a very good market for us,” Dinges told the CDT. “Through some of the analytics that we use, there’s an underserved population on the Toftrees side of I-99 as well as travelers on I-99, and this provides a more convenient way for those travelers coming through that part of Centre County and State College to get to one of our convenience restaurants.”

The gas station, wedged between a Cracker Barrel and another restaurant plot with no plans for development yet, will be especially useful to those who need to pull off I-99 for gas or some grub.

“I expect that we’ll see some movement here, now with Sheetz and this other potential tenant, that we’ll be filling them soon,” Kandy Weader, a consultant with the company who owns the land, told the CDT. “… It will be nice to have the PennDot work done and have the opportunity to have a Sheetz easily accessible there at that part of town close to I-99.”

The lease was signed in June and once ground is broken it will take about five months until the store is open for business.

Your move, Wawa.
