Work has begun on a new Sheetz store in Putnam County. Workers were on scene Friday preparing the site with heavy equipment. Sheetz, a family-owned company based in Altoona, Pa., has stores in six states. The company has undertaken an aggressive expansion plan in recent years. This will be the fourth location in Putnam County. Construction began on the county's third Sheetz in Poca, at the intersection of W.Va. 62 and W.Va. 25, in January. That store is expected to open in June.
The new store will be at the intersection of Mount Vernon and Teays Valley roads, across from Rock Branch Community Bank.
