    Sheetz Resumes Beer Sales in Altoona Convenience Restaurant

    May 06, 2010 - ALTOONA, Pa. -- Convenience store chain Sheetz Inc. yesterday resumed beer sales at one of its Convenience Restaurant locations here, following the recent ruling by the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB) allowing the location to stock and sell beer.

    "We look forward to welcoming back our customers who wish to purchase beer from us who have been inconvenienced by these ridiculous legal gymnastics in Pennsylvania," Stan Sheetz, president and CEO of Sheetz, said in a statement. "Unfortunately, the Pleasant Valley Sheetz location is the only one in Pennsylvania currently approved to sell beer, and we had to allow for on-site consumption for this to happen, That concept is ludicrous, and that's why there is still much work to be done by the Pennsylvania legislature to modernize beer sales laws in the Commonwealth."

    As the beer shelves are re-stocked, Sheetz sales personnel have been re-trained on proper procedures for preventing sales to minors, the company stated. The Sheetz store will also offer several dozen different brands of beer
