Sheetz Inc. is meeting the way forward for convenience retailing in Pittsburgh. The convenience store operator announced on Sept. 23 that it is establishing a technology and innovation hub within the city that will focus on developing, testing and implementing what Sheetz calls “transformative products and services,” based on KDKA.com.
“Our mission at Sheetz is to make a business that puts the Sheetz Menu 2020 as we know it today, from business,” Emily Sheetz, Sheetz’s assistant v . p . of strategy, said in a press release.
“This hub is an investment down the road and can give Sheetz a unique chance to access developers as well as other talent in Pittsburgh,” she added.
Based on the report, Sheetz selected Pittsburgh due to the growing reputation as being a city for start-ups and tech innovation. The retailer added it hopes to revolutionize what the “convenience” element of their future c-stores will look like.
Altoona-based Sheetz operates more than 580 store locations throughout Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, Ohio and North Carolina.
In an effort to bring customers the latest products and services, Sheetz will open its first-ever technology and innovation hub at Bakery Square in Pittsburg on Oct. 1, based on the city’s CBS station.
The hub will concentrate on developing, testing and implementing offerings that may one day show up on Sheetz store shelves. Among the new products and services recently launched by Sheetz are an extensive line of cannabidiol (CBD) products, Bitcoin kiosks at a number of stores and expanded wine and beer collections, including an exclusive coffee-flavored brew.
