ALTOONA, Pa. -- Sheetz Inc. has signed an agreement with PNC Bank to provide in-store ATMs with surcharge-free access to all customers in stores across six states. PNC will provide more than 480 ATMs at Sheetz locations in Maryland, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia. This will include more than 40 machines with DepositEasy capabilities that enable PNC customers to cash checks and deposit stacks of cash or checks without an envelope 24/7, 365 days a year.

"Our customers are busier than ever. They have more do to, less time to do it and as a result are looking for the most efficient ways to get what they need," said Joe Sheetz, president and CEO of Sheetz Inc. "The PNC DepositEasy capabilities give Sheetz an advantage because customers can come to our stores and accomplish many, if not all, of their daily tasks in one stop--just another way to provide great service for our valued customers."

The PNC ATMs will be installed during January and February 2014. Sheetz customers will not be charged a fee for using the PNC machines, but may still be charged by their own bank.

"PNC and Sheetz have a longstanding relationship and are always looking for innovative ways to make things more convenient for our customers," said Todd Barnhart, executive vice president of branch banking for PNC Bank. "The surcharge-free ATMs are a great benefit for all Sheetz customers and the convenience offered by the Sheetz locations further helps PNC customers to bank when and where they want."

Pittsburgh-based PNC Bank, a member of The PNC Financial Services Group, is one of the nation's largest diversified financial services organizations, serving approximately 5.8 million customers through 2,900 branches and 6,800 ATMs in 19 states and Washington, D.C.
