Starbucks coming, Sheetz moving in York Township

David Weissman

A new Starbucks will be built and a Sheetz will be moved within York Township, according to plans filed with the township office.

A Starbucks is planned for Springwood Road in York Township.

Township manager Elizabeth Heathcote said the Starbucks is scheduled to go up at 2044 Springwood Road, the former location of Wonderful Garden Chinese Restaurant.

The building that housed the restaurant, which closed Dec. 20, according to its website, has been razed.

Heathcote also said Sheetz had filed plans to move from its current location at  2721 S. Queen St. to Leader Heights Road near an Arby's.

Sheetz representatives did not return request for comment on the move.

Heathcote did not have projected completion dates for either project, which have both been approved by the township.
