First Convenience Store at RDU

Sheetz Inc., an Altoona, PA-based convenience store retailer, has opened up its first airport shop at Raleigh-Durham International (RDU). It’s the first retail offer at RDU’s new Aviation Station.

The store is located at one of the airport’s main entrances. Company officials say in a statement they hope to attract busy travelers with their food, coffee, gas and other items.

“This is one of the most exciting store openings for us at Sheetz because it’s something new for us to partner with the air travel industry,” says Louie Sheetz, executive vice president of marketing, in a statement. “We hope the unique setting of an airport brings us new opportunities to offer our brand of convenience to as many new customers as we can.”

The store opened June 20 but an official grand opening ceremony will occur July 10.
