Sheetz Inc. plans to build a gas station and convenience store in Hagerstown's South End.
The 24-hour operation would open at the northeast corner of South Potomac Street and Oak Ridge Drive, said Matt Davis, a planner with the city of Hagerstown.
Sheetz has wanted to build a store at that intersection for 10 years, but ran into zoning problems with a lot across Oak Ridge Drive, said Joseph M. Sheetz, vice president of store development.
"It's a great intersection and a part of town we're not covering now," Sheetz said.
The company has 23 stores in the Tri-State area.
The Hagerstown Planning Commission will consider site plan approval for the store at a March meeting, Davis said.
The store could be ready to open about 14 weeks after permit approval was obtained, Sheetz said.
The project includes eight gas pumps that can accommodate 16 cars at a time, he said.
