South Pugh Street Sheetz To Close In Late July

Tough day to be team Sheetz.

The Sheetz located at 129 S. Pugh St. will permanently close in late July, a Sheetz spokesperson confirmed to Onward State Tuesday.

“Sheetz has made the difficult decision to permanently close its store located along Pugh Street, in State College, Pennsylvania,” Sheetz Public Relations Manager Nick Ruffner said. “It is expected that this store will close in late July. However, all employees at this store location have been offered employment at other nearby Sheetz locations. We thank our customers for their years of support and look forward to serving them at our other locations in the State College area.”

The convenience store opened its downtown location in September 2015 and offered made-to-order food, beer, and 24-hour service throughout its eight-year residency on Pugh Street.

Sheetz was founded in Altoona, Pennsylvania, in 1952 and now operates over 650 locations in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Ohio, Virginia, West Virginia, and North Carolina.

Meanwhile, Wawa is “actively looking into potential sites” for franchises in the State College area. Wawa didn’t share any specific locations or a timeline, but the convenience store’s Senior Manager of Media Relations Lori Bruce anticipates a “number” of locations to open in State College and throughout Central Pennsylvania.
