Local convenience store goes above and beyond during Parkersburg boil advisory

PARKERSBURG W.Va, (WTAP)- The Sheetz on Ann Street in Downtown Parkersburg now has a water tank outside their facility to keep them fully operational during the boil advisory.

The water tank arrived Saturday night and guarantees clean water for drinking and cooking.

Additionally, the company's district manager also provided cases of water to their employees and their families, and rented a hotel room outside the city for employees and their families to use to shower. Members of the Sheetz team are grateful that their company is allowing them to continue to serve the community.

“I can’t even express how it makes me feel. I am so happy I actually got to bathe my girls after three days so they didn’t have a bath f or three days because of the water so we boiled the water and just washed them up so that was nice to be able to take them to a hotel and be able to get them bathed up and clean,” says Desarah Geer, a shift supervisor at Sheetz.

“There’s a lot of places closed right now, a lot of restaurants closed and there’s a lot of people that eat out on a daily so we’re here for them. If they need a place to go we’re here,” says Matthew Kinney, the hospitality manager at the Ann St. Sheetz.
