The time also will be reserved for senior citizens.

“This policy is being implemented to provide at-risk customers with a comfortable in-store experience,” the Altoona-based convenience store chain said in a news release Saturday. 

“Sheetz’s store employees will not be checking IDs of customers during this hour, but asks that community members respect this reserved hour.”

Also, starting at 8 p.m. Sunday, all customers will be required to have a face covering and employees will wear masks in all Sheetz stores, in accordance with Gov. Tom Wolf’s recent state health order.
