A new 24-hour Sheetz being built off the Mt. Nebo exit of Interstate 79 is expected to open in mid-November, Ohio Township officials said.
Pat Cannon, township clerk, said the store at 1910 Mt. Nebo Road is anticipated to open on Nov. 15, just in time for Thanksgiving travel.
She said crews have been working on the new 5,000-square-foot building, doing earth-moving work, since mid-April.
On the border, the convenience store in Ohio Township will include a gas station, car wash and made-to-order hot and cold foods.
Sheetz is now hiring to fill new positions at the clerk. Jobs available include store manager, shift manager, assistant manager, store salesperson and beverage host. Those interested can apply through the company's website.
The new store will be open 24-hours a day, seven days a week, every day of the year.
Sheetz is a privately-owned business based in Altoona. It operates more than 350 stores in six states.
