Sheetz to add stores, hire 250 by end of 2012 - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

It seems there are Sheetz in many communities fifteen miles or further from Pittsburgh. However, the successful Altoona based company never made inroads in Pittsburgh's near suburbs or in the city until now. BTW, Giant Eagle basically stole the Sheetz concept with GetGo.

Is it just me or am I missing where they are opening locations in the city? All I saw was Ross Twp. Not exactly closer to the city than some of the other suburban locations that are already open.

Actually, Ross will be the closest location to Downtown, not necessarily a city border, but this follows Wilkins Twp., which opened last year. They are moving to the nearer suburbs, whereas before, it was Murrysville, Springdale, etc.

I've always considered Sheetz to be W PA's answer to E PA's WAWA more so than GetGo and I love me some WAWA.....I think Sheetz and WAWA come to a meeting point in the Harrisburg area.

As someone who is tiring of driving to Springdale from the East End JUST to get to Sheetz this is welcome news! I'm really not a big fan of the GetGo on Baum Boulevard.

I thought Sheetz agreed not to open anymore stores in the city when they spun their Pittsburgh stores off as Crossroads 20 years ago. The Crossroads were eventually converted into GetGo's.

There's a new Sheetz in Wilkins, right on 22 where the movie theatres used to be.

Thanks for the heads-up! That's likely closer!
