HIGH POINT, N.C. — The High Point City Council on Monday reportedly approved rezoning for the construction of a new Sheetz store at West Lexington Avenue and Westchester Drive.

The High Point Enterprise reports there were several objections proposed by nearby residents, however only one council member, Mike Pugh, voted against the building of the new store.

The 6,134-square-foot store is expected to be built on the southwest corner of the intersection and would be smaller than most Sheetz locations near major highways, the paper reports. About 40 full-time and part-time workers would be hired.
