Sheetz opening in Ephrata, PA – Joining urgent medical and urgent dental
CPBJ reports: A Sheetz will open Thursday in Ephrata Township, the first of three businesses that will hire a total of about 95 people, company spokespeople said.
The gas and convenience store at routes 322 and 222 has 550 square feet of space, with seating for about 20 people, said Monica Jones, a spokeswoman for Altoona-based Sheetz Inc.
The building’s cost was between $2 million and $3 million, she said. Most of the construction and design was completed by internal teams, but Leacock Township-based contractor Scenic Ridge Construction was involved with the project, she said.
Between 35 and 40 people are hired for that size store, which will open at 9 a.m. on Thursday, Jones said.
In the spring, Lancaster General Health will open an Urgent Care center in a 5,000-square-foot space at the same plaza, spokesman John Lines said.
