CIRCLEVILLE – According to planning and zoning documents Sheetz is planning on building a convenience store right here in Circleville. News of this construction came down in February of 2020, so whats the hold up?
The 7,009 square feet of store with included car wash is planned for the old Thompson Lot located at 1395 South Court Street, that was torn down in March of 2018.
The Altoona, Pennsylvania-based chain of gas stations and convenience store is known for its made-to-order food items, sandwiches and baked goods. This particular Sheetz while known to cater to semi-trucks drivers in other locations, it does not seem this particular station will have the parking or gas pump distances to fit trailer trucks.
Sheetz is still currently trying to pass variances at the BZA planning board to move forward. They have two variances that will be heard at the Circleville Board of Zoning appeals tomorrow night for approval of a free standing sign and for a conditional use
permit to establish an outdoor dining area for a (Sheetz-branded) restaurant, gas
station and car wash on vacant property at 1395 S. Court St. owned by Connie
Klema, 1395 S. Court St., LLC, in an area zoned (GB) General Business District. The board will hear from the company during a telephone communication conference due ot COVID-19
Sheetz is well known for their made-to-order foods that rivals any quick serve restaurant according to sheets, that you can order from an app.
Plans are waiting approval by the new zoning board recently created by Circleville Council for the company to move forward with the build phase. Recently Sheets announced another store on Obetz and there are rumors of one North of Columbus in plans.
