Sheetz Opens New Store in Washington County

Sheetz is set to open a new convenience store and gas station at 1333 Dual Highway, near Mount Aetna Road in Washington County, on Tuesday. The public opening is scheduled for 8 a.m., with grand opening festivities commencing at 9 a.m. The celebration includes free self-serve coffee and soda throughout the day. Attendees can participate in multiple prize drawings, including a grand prize of a $2,500 Sheetz gift card, equating to “free Sheetz for a Year.” Participants must be over 18 and present to win, with no purchase necessary.

In addition to the festivities, the store will host a ribbon cutting at 10:45 a.m. and encourages donations of nonperishable food items for the Maryland Food Bank. Donors will receive a Sheetz-thermal bag from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., while supplies last. Sheetz is also making charitable donations of $2,500 each to the Maryland Food Bank and the Special Olympics of Maryland.

The new store features gas pumps and EV charging stations. This opening follows the closure of an older Sheetz location farther west along eastbound U.S. 40 in March. Moreover, another Sheetz store is under development at the Longmeadow Shopping Center in Hagerstown’s North End, though its completion date remains unconfirmed.
