ALTOONA, PA (WOWK) – Sheetz announced changes to its in-store operations today in order to help protect the health and well-being of its team members and customers in the COVID-19 pandemic.
The company decided to suspend a portion of its self-serve options including:
Self-serve coffee – Sheetz says customers who would like to purchase a cup of coffee should use the touch-screen order points or ask an employee for assistance who will serve coffee to them.
Self-service beverages including fountain beverages, freshly brewed tea, frozen drinks and milkshakes.
Self-serve bakery items including doughnuts and muffins.
Company officials say these changes follow other modifications already in place which include enhanced routine daily cleaning procedures with a focus on high touch surface areas including gas pumps, order points, countertops, checkout lines and door handles.
Policy also includes the reinforcement and re-training of all employees on proper handwashing and hygiene.
“Sheetz is doing everything we can to prioritize the health and well-being of our team members, customers and the communities we serve as the situation around COVID-19 continues to evolve,” said Travis Sheetz, president and COO of Sheetz, Inc. “These changes are in the best interest of our customers and employees as we remain a vital resource for our communities.”
