New Sheetz to open near casino Thursday

Altoona-based Sheetz Inc. will open its fourth Erie County location Thursday at 11 a.m., across from Presque Isle Downs & Casino.

Company officials, including Louie Sheetz, will be joined by local government officials as the company opens its 432nd store.

Sheetz says the new 5,100-square-foot location represents an investment of $3.5 million and will create 40 to 45 new full and part-time jobs.

Sheetz, which does business in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Virginia, Ohio, Maryland and North Carolina, plans to make a $2,500 donation to the Special Olympics of Pennsylvania as part of its grand opening celebration.

The first 50 customers in line will receive $100 Sheetz gift cards.
