Editor’s note:  I think this is pretty amazing that a convenience store chain would build a wellness center for their employees.

CLAYSBURG – Sheetz employees now have a greater opportunity to improve their health with Wednesday’s opening of the $4 million Sheetz Center for Shwellness beside the Sheetz Distribution Center in the Walter Business Park near here.

“This is a state-of-the-art health and wellness center.  This creates an environment for our employees to be actively involved and more responsible for their health and wellness,” said Bill Young, director of compensation, benefits and risk.

Sheetz, along with its partner Marathon Health, will use medical staff to provide individual health and wellness coaching to employees and their eligible dependents.  The Shwellness Center is intended to help Sheetz employees improve their overall health by creating awareness of their own health conditions, while allowing them to better manage their medical care costs.  All services are offered to eligible employees and dependents free of charge.

Never Thought I Would Live To See This

The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board has maintained a strangle-hold on alcohol sales in our state for decades.  For many years people have been screaming about reforming the State Store system and the state monopoly on alcohol sales.  Many other states allow alcohol sales in convenience and grocery stores.

Interesting article below on the subject from the Center Daily Times that involves Altoona based Sheetz, Inc.  There is a Sheetz store located on Route 422 near Birdsboro.
