Sheetz Storefront

Sheetz convenience store.

Convenience stores are booming in Northern Virginia as stores stretch beyond fuel stations to hot food and dining space.

In particular, Sheetz has grown from a single Prince William County site on the Prince William Parkway to include locations in Bristow, Dale City, Haymarket, Manassas Park and Woodbridge.

The county has approved a special use permit for a new Sheetz on Prince William Parkway across from the Dale City Fire Station at 3300 Noble Pond Way. The next step will be a staff review of site plans.

Developers are moving forward with plans for a new Sheetz at the proposed Parsons Business Park, located on Dumfries Road near Independent Hill.

Changes submitted to county planners July 3 attempt to address concerns about buffers, fire protection fees and environmental protections at the 3.87-acre site.

Another Manassas-area Sheetz site is under review by county staff. The fuel station would be built at 8521 Sudley Road, at the corner with Fairmont Avenue, across from Miller Toyota.

This article is incorrect the location in Haymarket is OLDER than the one on Prince William Parkway and was first established in 1994, this is what my GM used to tell me when I was working there and the plaque in the break room celebrating 20 years in 2014 had confirmed.

The location in Haymarket is older than the one on Prince William I used to work there and this is what was told by my GM and to confirm this there was a plaque celebrating 20 years of Sheetz in Haymarket from 1994 to 2014. Even looking at the store number Sheetz 205 in Haymarket vs Sheetz 244 on the PW parkway confirms this.
