Buckhannon Sheetz to undergo a ‘major remodel’ next year that will include the addition of a drive-thru

BUCKHANNON – Customers craving Sheetz’s famous shnackz and schweetz won’t even have to shtop and get out of their vehicles by the time a major store overhaul and renovation is complete next summer.

Sheetz, described on its website as a “kicked-up convenience store” and more, is planning to close its North Locust Street/Route 20 location in Buckhannon in order to complete a major remodel. That remodel will include a drive-thru for hungry customers in a hurry.

Nick Ruffner, public relations manager for Sheetz, said the location will close sometime next spring and is tentatively scheduled to reopen to the general public in the summer of 2023.

“This remodel will allow Sheetz the opportunity to provide its loyal customers in Buckhannon a new store design, which will include a restaurant-style experience with self-service kiosks and additional seating both inside and outside the store,” Ruffner wrote in an email to My Buckhannon. “The store, which will be approximately 6,000 square feet, will include a drive-thru for customers on the go and 10 fuel dispensers.”

Ruffner confirmed the Weston Sheetz on Berlin Road near the entrance to I-79 closed in September to complete a major remodel as well. The Weston location is expected to reopen in March 2023.

“Sheetz is excited to be offering Weston residents a new store design,” he said. “In every new store design, Sheetz includes a new restaurant-style experience with self-service kiosks and additional seating both inside and outside the store. The store is tentatively scheduled to reopen to the public in March of next year.”

And Sheetz employees who work at both the Buckhannon and Weston stores won’t be without work, Ruffner said.

“Sheetz employees from both stores will and have been offered other jobs in the company temporarily, while the remodels are underway,” he said.

Sheetz operates over 500 locations throughout West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Maryland, Ohio and North Carolina, according to its website.
