ALTOONA, Penn.—Central Ohio will get its first Sheetz convenience store on April 6 in Delaware, a city about 30 miles north of Columbus. According to ThisWeekNews.com, it is the first of 14 Sheetz locations scheduled to open through 2025 as the chain expands in the state, as NACS Daily reported.
Each store will employ about 30 people, most in full-time positions. Sheetz is considered one of the fastest-growing, family-owned and -operated convenience-store chains, with locations in Maryland, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia. The chain has a history of working with nonprofits in the communities it operates.
Additional stores slated to open in central Ohio this year will be in Groveport, New Albany, Delaware, Circleville Hilliard. New stores are not the only shake up happening at Sheetz. Recently, Sheetz also promoted Bob Sheetz’ grandson Adam Sheetz to EVP of Operations, who will oversee operations at all Sheetz locations.
