3 min read

NEWARK — The neighbors may not have wanted the Sheetz gas station, convenience store and restaurant, but the crowd that swarmed the business for Tuesday’s grand opening seemed fine with the Newark location.

Sheetz opened its 13th central Ohio location and 645th in six states at 815 North 21st St., on the corner of North 21st and Moull streets, attracting hundreds of customers with free gift card drawings, one for $2,500.

The development includes a 6,077-square foot brick and stone building for the convenience store and restaurant, indoor and outdoor seating, and a fuel canopy for eight pumps.

Ralph Westfall, a Newark resident who attended the opening, said, “I think it’s pretty nice. I think it’ll do real well. It’s easy to get in and out. I think the location is all right. They’ve got plenty of room. Shouldn’t bother anybody.”
