Locals crowded the new Sheetz at 1401 W. Harrisburg Pike in Lower Swatara Twp. on Thursday, July 23 as the store celebrated its grand opening.
Joseph Sheetz, the convenience store chain’s chief executive officer, welcomed the crowd to the new store and presented a check for $2,500 to the Special Olympics of Pennsylvania.
After employees cut the ribbon to mark the store’s opening, one employee had the honor of ceremoniously throwing away the key to the front door. Sheetz will remain open 24 hours a day year-round – so the front door will never be locked.
Once locals entered, they were greeted with balloons, a prize wheel and free samples of food.
The new store is the eighth Sheetz in the area – there also are stores in Hummelstown, Hershey and Swatara Twp. The chain plans to open another Dauphin County location, on Lindle Road, this fall.

Second Area Family Tapped to Feud In Front Of Millions
“Family Feud” has been Diane McNulty’s favorite television show for years. The long-time, popular game show involves guessing survey responses to such issues as “what to bring on vacation” or “brands of ketchup.”
Many of us have watched “The Feud” at home and probably have yelled our best responses at the screen. So what if only the family dog hears you; it’s fun.

Imagine eating your way around the square in Hummelstown. That’s what a crowd did on Monday, July 20 during A Taste of Hummelstown, an annual fund-raiser featuring food donated by borough restaurants, other businesses and organizations.
The event, staged by The Hummelstown Business and Professional Association, featured tables with donated palate-pleasers, from soup to veggies to pizza and more.
Proceeds will go to a variety of Hummelstown charities. Last year’s event raised money for the Hummelstown Police Department, the Hummelstown Fire Company, the Hummelstown Food Bank and summer recreation programs for youth, among other causes.
See who was there.
