A grand opening ceremony was held yesterday, where the company also made a donation to the Blue Mountain School District to purchase Smartboards and other electronic learning equipment for its Interactive Learning though Technology program, according to the company.
"We are thrilled to join the Schuylkill Haven community and be a part of the events that are important to them," Louie Sheetz, executive vice president of marketing for Sheetz, said in a statement.
