This photo was taken at the Sheetz Gas Station at the intersection where Market and Friendly meet up, near all of those gas tanks out by the airport. From West Wendover to Battleground across from the Carousel Grande Theater, Sheetz seems to be taking Greensboro by storm. Sheetz is named after the Sheetz family that started with one store in Altoona, PA in 1961. Now, there are 400 locations in 6 states. People who work in the Pennsylvania and Ohio stores say it is a good place to work. We hope their Greensboro employees think so, too. There are at least 5 stores in Greensboro and, the bright red buildings and gas trucks are hard to miss.
Where do you get your gas in Greensboro? Are you loyal to your gas station? Or, do you station hop? Do you like mega-stations or tiny, mom-and-pop places? For some nostalgia, go back and look at this 2009 photo of Sprinkle Gas Station on Lee Street. Two different worlds; two different world views! Got Sheetz or Sprinkle in your tank? Happy Friday, dear readers.
