I don't know about the other Sheetzes in town, but the ones on Firetower and Portertown ROCK all of the time. Wilco Hess is in trouble at that location (if true).

I sure wish they would move 45 miles down the road to NB.

I don't know if having a lot of northerners in town have anything to do with it, but I'm pretty sure there aren't as many of them in NB as there are in Greenville.

From what I know, and it is not much, they looked at coming farther east, about a year ago, but decided to go west instead. When I was in Salisbury last month, they had a very, very new one there. I stopped in for a fountain Cheerwine, before heading back home.

The CEO's daughter attended ECU. That's what got them looking at the area in the first place.

Washington is getting a Sheetz soon. It is under construction.

Seriously? That's a pretty good deal, she goes to school here, her father opens stores here.

Sheetz brought some NorthEast products down with them too. A notable one for me was Utz potato chips. Before Sheetz came to Greenville, I would have to go back north or to a 7-11 in the Outer Banks to get them. Sheetz brought them to Greenville and now every grocery store in Greenville has them. Lays had a virtual monopoly on chips here and that is no more.

The City Council seems to be taking on West Greenville housing, or the abandoned houses there. Today, 17.4 percent of the city's 23,585 residential structures are vacant, a number that is higher than before the recession, when less than 10 percent of homes were unoccupied, the most recent figures show.

The council has sought a new approach to reestablishing the city's housing market: tear down the uninhabitable homes and focus on filling the 1,120 available listings. Eight houses were ordered to be repaired or demolished, after 90 days.

There is no registry of abandoned or vacant properties. Housing inspectors identified 90 homes as deserted, but not all of them were in disrepair. Many were abandoned by owners who wanted to evade taxes.
______________________

The city really needs to tear down all dilapidated structures. If it cost more to repair, than its worth, tear it down. Reduce these buildings, will help out immensely.
