ALTOONA, Pa., Aug. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Sheetz announced today it will close the store located at 2000 E. College Avenue, in State College on August 19, 2015. Store associates from this location will be retained and relocated to one of the other four existing stores in the State College area.
"While the decision to close a store is never easy," says CEO Joe Sheetz, "we are continually assessing the performance of our store locations and customer's needs; as a result of these reviews, we made the decision to close our store on College Avenue. We are focused on food and beverage growth and we are evaluating all our existing stores on their overall brand presence, physical capabilities and potential to accommodate our future business needs. We are excited for the new era of Sheetz, which includes our newest concept, opening this fall in downtown State College."
More than two years in development, this new concept store will allow customers to engage with Sheetz in another way, showcasing Sheetz passion for food and a devotion to innovation and excellence. Every detail of the space will give customers a new way to enjoy Sheetz food offerings and provide locals and students a new way to interact with Sheetz in downtown State College. The first Sheetz concept store opened in Morgantown last spring.
Sheetz will continue to serve the State College community with its four remaining stores in the area and a new store opening this fall on 129 S. Pugh Street.
Sheetz remains dedicated to providing the best experience to their customers. They pride themselves on doing so with Total Customer Focus, by providing fast, friendly service and quality products in clean and convenient locations.
