I always use the restroom or the store/restaurant when I'm at a Sheetz or a GetGo. I'm on the go a lot. A more modern gas station has all of that..food, coffee, donuts, clean restrooms, etc.

Honestly, Ross Park is just as far from the city proper as Robinson, if you take McKnight Road's current traffic situation into account.

Yeah but you wouldn't go on McKnight to get to that Sheetz from the city anyway, or I wouldn't, even if the bridge wasn't under construction. 279 to Perrysville Ave exit, straight over onto Cemetery lane, and that would take you right down to it. Do not do this at evening rush hour though.

Yes!I do remember the one in Oakland! Eeeegads I'm dating myself!

I remember when I lived in Oakland back in the 80's , there was a Sheetz on Forbes Ave near Atwood. I remember this as being early or mid eighties timeline though, and I can't even recall how long it was there.

wow, I honestly couldn't even picture a modern Sheetz in that part of Oakland today. I say that their best bet would be in a neighborhood such as East Liberty or Highland Park where land isn't at as much as a premium for their hypothetical city location. Oakland is pretty much out of room (although for some reason the Wendys on 5th has been sitting vacant for years) and is expanding more and more into the Upper Hill
