Sheetz opens new beer caves

Sheetz has opened 30 new beer caves throughout Pennsylvania, including stores on Norland Avenue in Chambersburg and on Washington Township Boulevard in Waynesboro.

The move continues an effort “to meet its customers demand for the ultimate one-stop-shop where they can fuel up, enjoy a meal and also responsibly purchase alcoholic beverages,” the company stated in a news release.

Sheetz currently sells beer in 138 locations across Pennsylvania as well as in the five other states located in the company’s footprint.

The company, based in Altoona, Pa., said it “is committed to responsibly complying with all current laws and regulations, including the enforcement of a 100 percent proof-of-age policy. Employees will ask for proper identification, a valid driver’s license, passport or military identification card from any customers wanting to purchase alcohol, regardless of age. Each location also abides by time-of-day sales restrictions on alcohol.”

Sheetz employs more than 18,500 people and operates more than 585 stores throughout Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, Ohio and North Carolina.
