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.
