‘Sheetz’ is a convenience store with a die-hard fan base only found in six states: Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Ohio, and North Carolina. We went to a Sheetz location to see what we would find inside. Sheetz is often compared to Wawa, another convenience store found in only six states. Following is a transcript of the video.
This is Sheetz. A convenience store with a die-hard fan base.
There are 500+ stores across Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Ohio, and North Carolina.
“Sheetz” is the last name of the family behind it. It all started in 1953 in Altoona, PA. Gas was added in 1973. Sheetz fans say gas is always cheaper there. Stores are open 24/7 with made-to-order food, which you order on their iconic touch screens. Plus, two hot dogs for just $1! And breakfast “Shmuffins” and “Shmiscuits” served anytime.
Customers love the rewards program. The MySheetz Card gets you discounts on food and gas.
It’s probably worth a late-night trip to see what the fuss is about.
