The Sheetz gas station at William Penn Highway and Elliot Road has purchased a liquor license and now awaits state approval.

Monroeville Council has unanimously approved a liquor license transfer that will allow beer and wine to be sold at a Sheetz gas station and convenience store in eastern Monroeville, pending approval by the state Liquor Control Board.

Shawn Kelly, a spokesman for the LCB, said there is no timetable for the state's approval process.

The gas station is at 4723 William Penn Highway, near Levin Furniture.

Attorney Mark Kozar, whose law firm represented Sheetz in the transaction, said the company bought the license at a public auction in March. In addition to selling beer and wine, the license allows customers to drink alcohol in the store's dining area.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
