The petrol station on Bramall lane has gone viral on TikTok after a number of highly viewed and liked videos appeared on the site from visiting customers.
People are now travelling from across the country to visit the store, which has gained popularity due to its range of American confectionery and other snacks and drinks rarely sold in the UK.

Here is everything you need to know.
What do they sell at the TikTok garage in Sheffield?
The BP petrol station contains a Subway, a Costa, some Tango Ice Blast machines and also a Spar which sells a wide range of American sweets, drinks and snack, as well as Pick and Mix sweets, milkshakes, popcorn and nachos.
Site manager, Amrik Singh, says they were only initially selling the confectionery and drinks in small amounts, but it became increasingly popular and so they decided to get them in larger amounts.
"We thought it was a new area of products and we just tried it in small amounts and it was selling very good, so we then started to get more of it.
"Still people are coming in and recording videos and uploading to TikTok, Instagram, YouTube and everywhere, and so it is still like a craze.”
Amrik is incredibly happy and thankful to all his customers, and has even sent special gifts to the people who have come in and uploaded their videos of the station to TikTok which has made the petrol station famous.
"I feel very happy, when the shop is busy the sales are going up and it’s amazing.
"I have watched almost all of them (the videos), and we have called a few of the customers as well who have made the videos, we have given them hampers and thanked them because it is them who have made us famous.”
