WASHINGTON — Popular gas and convenience store chain Sheetz will open its newest D.C.-area store in Sterling, Virginia, July 18.

The store is located at 42855 Yardley Ridge Drive.

Sheetz, whose 578 stores are spread across Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, Ohio and North Carolina, said it is opening a new location in every one of those states over the next month.

Sheetz’s Sterling grand opening will have prizes, including a $1,000 Sheetz gift card, and free self-serve coffee and soda for a limited time.

Sheetz will also donate $2,500 to the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank and $2,500 to the Special Olympics of Virginia.

Sheetz and Wawa, its equally popular rival, are favored for their cheap gas and made-to-order hoagies. Both are also testing the waters with stores that leave out the gas station component.
Wawa opened its first urban format store near Dupont Circle in December, with another one coming to Georgetown.

Sheetz has several fuel-free Sheetz Cafe locations on college campuses including the University of Virginia, West Virginia University, Penn State University and Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
