Do You Remember The Very First Store?

Do You Remember The Very First Store? I remember as a kid, riding my bike to this very first Sheetz store for candy, chips and pop! Oh, the good ole days!

The first and original Sheetz store located on Union and 5th Avenues in Altoona. Bob Sheetz founded Sheetz, Inc. in 1952 when he purchased one of his father's five dairy stores located in Altoona. In 1961, Bob hired his brother Steve to work part-time at the store. It was not until 1963 that the second store was opened under the name "Sheetz Kwik Shopper."
