The Town of Nashville welcomed its second tenant to Nash Crossing last week, as Sheetz officially opened.
The convenience store held its grand opening festivities last Thursday morning, starting with a ribbon cutting ceremony to formally open the store.
On hand for the ribbon cutting were Joe Sheetz, President and CEO of Sheetz, as well as brothers Terrence and Torry Holt, of Holt Brothers Construction in Raleigh, which served as the general contractors for the project. The Holt brothers are also former NFL football players.
Nashville's Chamber of Commerce, Nashville Town Council members and many others were also on hand for the ribbon cutting event.
The grand opening event included giveaways as well as a special presentation of a $2,500 donation to Special Olympics North Carolina, an organization that Sheetz has supported for over 20 years.
The Nashville location of Sheetz is the fourth Sheetz in Nash County. Sheetz operates 545 store locations across Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio and Maryland.
The Nashville location will offer 30 full and part-time job opportunities.
Sheetz locations are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
