GREENCASTLE, Pa. -- Construction soon will begin on a second Sheetz convenience store in Greencastle that is set to open in late November or early December.

The project "is going well," said Mike LaCesa, director of real estate for Sheetz.

The new Greencastle store is one of 26 Sheetz projects slated for completion this year, he said.

Crews have been preparing the ground for construction at the intersection of Grindstone Hill Road and Pa. 16. LaCesa said the new store should attract customers traveling on Pa. 16 into Waynesboro as well as traffic from Interstate 81.

"We think this is a little bit of a different market" LaCesa said.

The current store at the intersection of U.S. 11 and Pa. 16 will remain open, he said.

The new store, which will be open 24 hours, will offer seven gasoline pumps and a car wash, LaCesa said.

Monica Jones, manager of communications and public relations for Sheetz, said several newer products will be available in the new store, including Shweetz Bakery baked goods.

The new Sheetz also will offer an extension of the company's M.T.O. menu as well as items from the "M.T.Go" line, including "saladz and wrapz," she said.

Sheetz expects to hire 35 to 40 employees for the new store, LaCesa said.

Sheetz is a family-owned operation based in Altoona, Pa. There are 365 Sheetz convenience stores across a six-state region. The corporation employs more than 13,000 people.
