Sheetz New Store Location

I am against Sheetz building a super store on Graham and 15th Street. That is in the center of our town and at one of the busiest intersections. Their present 9th St. location gets crazy..can you imagine the congestion at Graham and 15th...and if there were emergency vehicles trying to navigate through here..the Fire Dept..is around the corner. Enough damage has been done and is presently being done to destroy any type of historical features of our town...Our history is being sold . Sheetz should look at property which would make it convenient from RT. 56...What will happen on Miners Days and holidays when Graham is closed down???? Can you hear corporate Sheetz crying and trying to sue Windber Boro now???? We all support Sheetz ...but not in the middle of our little town. Thanks

keep fighting sheetz windber elected official and citizens!!! if you do not you will have the same affect moxham and other locations that decided to supersize their sheetz stores. crime will be affected!!!!! there will be problems with municiple personnel ie fire , police , etc. Forget your local parades, festivals, street bazaars, dog run antics etc sheetz will overtake your quaint borough i've scene it happen and it is not pretty. Please don't let your historic buildings lose out to corporate greediness. Fight them all the way!! Windber is progessing, look at the Arcardia and the awesome Winber Hotel!!!! I have just recently moved into Johnstown Area from a 20 year life away and Windber's historic restoration/renovation mainstreet is going great!!
Keep at it everyone, I love being around Windber business's events etc. I only wish I would have purchased a property in Windber to help cruisade with residents!!!!

Sheetz did try and find other locations, just people wanted a "kings ransom" for the land. Once they knew Sheetz wanted to buy the land, they got greedy. I hate where the new store is located, but you can't blame them 100%/
