“Each new store we open is drawing larger and larger crowds, with many people arriving hours before the official opening to be part of the excitement,” said Stan Sheetz, company president and CEO, in a news release. “We can’t wait to serve our new friends in the King area as they become part of the Sheetz’ experience.”
Travis Sheetz, vice president of operations, will join local officials at the 10:45 a.m. ribbon-cutting at the new 5,941-square-foot store. The 703 East King Street location will be one of 10 new Sheetz stores opening in North Carolina this year and will feature a drive-through for Sheetz’ trademark fast service. During the King opening, customers can play games to win prizes and enjoy samples of Sheetz food and specialty beverages.
