VIDEO: South Atherton St. Sheetz to Open in December

by on September 28, 2011 1:10 PM

The State College area's newest Sheetz store, on South Atherton Street at West Branch Road, is now expected to open in mid-December, company spokeswoman Monica Jones told StateCollege.com.

She said newly built store will cover about 5,000 square feet -- the largest convenience-store square footage allowed under College Township zoning rules.

A Sheetz store of that size typically employs about 30 people, most of them part-time, according to the Altoona-based chain. Hiring for the new store -- the fifth in the Centre Region -- has already begun.

StateCollege.com Managing Editor William Derrick spoke with Jones about the project this week. Some of her remarks, and a look at the construction process, are included in the video report embedded below.
