The sound of cranes, bull dozers and front loaders; all music to the ears of Tom Shields, Sr., whose waited a long time for this.
"Sheetz has already signed their contract, they've done their feasibility study, they filed their site plan. They should start construction early this spring," says Shields.
The Sheetz will be going in right in front of the McDonalds on Route 608, and just a half mile before you get on the interstate here on 608, Construction has already begun on Ferguson Enterprises, a fortune 500 company set to open in July of 2005.
"Ferguson Enterprises it’s a major plumbing electrical supplier" says Shields.
Construction will also soon start here on Ladd Road, just a half a mile from the Chamber of Commerce. Sixty six townhouses and fifty five single family homes should be place by July.
And also in the works is a strip mall, which will go right behind the Sheetz and right across from the Chamber of Commerce. At this time, Shields says it will have a total of 8 stores, including a pharmacy and a bank.
Shields says they are also in talks with officials with Wendy's restaurant.
