Altoona, Pa.-based Sheetz has opened a new store in Eden, N.C., just North of Greensboro.
The new site sits at 102 North Van Buren Road and brings the total number of Sheetz locations in the state to 24.
“People in the Greensboro area have been good to us at Sheetz and we’re glad to continue to provide the best possible service 24 hours a day to help people get through their busy lives,” said Stan Sheetz, president and CEO of Sheetz Inc. “We are happy to extend our devotion to the people of Eden as well and hope they enjoy what we have to offer.”
Doors officially opened this morning (Sept. 3) and employees are hosting a grand opening celebration with a ribbon cutting ceremony later this afternoon at 1:30p.m. As part of today’s celebration, the company will make a donation to the Communities in Schools of Rockingham County program.
