If past Sheetz openings are any indication, area residents are expected to be waiting in line before day break to be among the first 50 in line to receive $100 Sheetz gift cards at the opening of the company’s newest store in Greensboro, NC, at 11 a.m. on Thursday, March 22nd.
“Each new store we open is drawing larger and larger crowds, with many people arriving hours before the official opening to be part of the excitement,” says Louie Sheetz, executive vice-president of marketing. “We will now have seven convenient locations in the Greensboro area with the opening of two new stores this spring.”
The new Sheetz will provide an economic boost to the area, creating 40 to 45 new full and part time jobs, and add $3.5 million taxable property value to the city and county tax base. Additionally, Sheetz has been a proud supporter of the Special Olympics for more than 20 years and will make a $2,500 donation to the local chapter of Special Olympics North Carolina as part of the opening festivities.
Louie Sheetz and Ryan Sheetz will join local officials at the 10:45 a.m. ribbon-cutting at the new 5,941 square foot store. The 3941 West Market Street location will be one of ten new Sheetz stores opening in North Carolina this year and will feature a convenient drive-through for Sheetz’ trademark fast service. During the Greensboro opening, customers can play games to win prizes and enjoy samples of Sheetz food and specialty beverages.
The new Sheetz will be open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and offer fresh food items like Sheetz’ signature Made•To•Order (M•T•O) items that include Angus beef burgers, premium grilled chicken sandwiches, freshly made salads, French fries, onion rings and more. The new store will also feature our M•T•Go! and Shweetz Bakery lines of sandwiches, wraps, donuts and muffins, along with Sheetz Bros. Coffeez, a full-service espresso and smoothie bar staffed by a trained barista where customers can order hand-made specialty coffee drinks including lattes, cappuccinos and mochas – hot, frozen or iced.
