Mosside Boulevard Sheetz seeks to sell beer

August 20, 2018

Representatives of a Sheetz gas station want to sell beer at one of the chain’s three Monroeville locations.

The 2100 Mosside Blvd. gas station obtained a permit to allow the sale of 150 kinds of beer. The station has been under construction since 2017 and, when finished, will have a restaurant and seating area.

Mark Kozar of Flaherty & O’Hara, who is representing the Altoona-based company, said the store will have a “beer cave” and a separate cash register that will handle the sales of beer, similar to the other two existing stores in Monroeville, which already permit the sale of beer.

No wine will be available for sale at the Mosside Boulevard location though it could be an option in the future, he said.

“That won’t be for a while,” Kozar said.

Kozar said Sheetz has 39 applications with the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board to allow the sale of beer in its stores and another 82 across the state already are selling alcohol.

The attorney said the gas station will sell beer between 7 and 1:45 a.m. Mondays through Saturdays. On Sundays, beer sales start at 9 a.m., per state law, he said. The gas station also will implement a 100 percent carding policy and will card every person in a group attempting to purchase beer.

Council members did not have questions regarding the liquor license and no residents came forward to comment or ask questions.

Council will vote on the liquor license transfer on Aug. 14.
