Skilken Gold announced today the purchase of a 1.88-acre site from Delaware Development Plan Ltd., the master developer of Coughlin’s Crossing, a 77-acre mixed used development, located along U.S. Route 23 , between Stratford Road and the newly-constructed Penny Way.  This site will be home to Sheetz’s second location in Delaware.

The approximately 6,000-square-foot Sheetz, situated just south of Penny Way and next to the Blue Sky Car Wash, will offer the convenience store’s nationally acclaimed Made-to-Order (M-T-O®) and MADE-TO-GO® menu selections, indoor retail and dining space, an outdoor patio, an espresso bar, a touchpad-based drive-thru and four fueling stations with eight gas pumps.

“This is a terrific site for Sheetz, as it expands into Delaware and across Central Ohio,” said Isaac Gold, Skilken Gold’s Vice President of Real Estate. “The location will offer the community a convenient one-stop destination, where they can eat, shop and fuel up their cars.”

Coughlin’s Crossing will feature a mix of shops, restaurants and homes, creating a fresh new entrance to the city’s south side. The master development company, backed by auto dealership executives Al and Mike Coughlin and other family members, also recently received approval for a 16,000-square-foot, multi-tenant building and two 19,000-square-foot commercial buildings, both south of Route 23.

“This is an exciting mixed-use project in Delaware, and we’re thrilled that Sheetz will be a part of it,” Gold said.

Gold anticipates that construction on the Sheetz store will begin in the coming months.
