Sheetz to Break Ground on Richmond Street

A new franchise is coming to Painesville City. Sheetz, Inc. has acquired the land at the corner of Richmond Street and Stage Avenue and plans to start demolition on March 3.
The three parcels of land include 461 Richmond Street (Crystal Clean Car Wash), 429 Richmond Street (Lakeview Industries) and 33 Stage Avenue (vacant lot). 439 Richmond Street was rezoned from an M-1 industrial property to a B-2 general business property back in May 2022 at the recommendation of the Painesville Planning Commission and City Council to make this project feasible.
Sheetz is an American chain of gas stations and convenience stores offering 24/7 service. The company plans to install six gas pumps at their new Richmond Street location including a convenience store, outdoor seating, made-to-order food service and a 24/7 drive thru service. Customers will be able to enter and exit on both Stage Avenue and Richmond Street.
The location will now be the closest gas station to the SR-2 interchange.
