    Casey's expansion

    I don't know what they're doing in the rest of the state but they have bought two giant locations in Marion in the past 3-4 months. They bought the Shortstop on Marion Blvd. and now the big Conoco across from the Marion Walmart.

    Are they expanding in this fashion elsewhere in Iowa? I think it's safe to say they are no longer your neighborhood's corner store, rather a huge conglomerate.

    I thought Casey's sold or at least was for sale a few years back. I could be wrong.

    Re: Casey's expansion

    Yeah, in spurning the two recent take over bids they announced major expansion plans. In part to help satisfy stockholders that were in favor of the take over bids on the stock price.

    bought the shortstops in DSM as well, 2 I can think of are Beaver & Douglas and 22nd & University in WDM. Think there are at least 2 more E 14th & Euclid and another in WDM but I haven't been by those in a while to know that they have switched for sure.

    Rest easy....they kept all the employees.

    I've always liked Casey's. I'm just concerned whether they can maintain this rapid expansion and renovation without jeopardizing their financial future.

    Re: Casey's expansion

    They put up a new one in Huxley and it is awesome. I can't step foot into an older Casey's now after being in the new style one's. They even have a decent beer and wine selection in it.

    I wondered if the sudden expansion and remodeling was an effort to keep Couche-**** off them for awhile, now i guess we know that was the case.

    Re: Casey's expansion

    They rebuilt one in Emmetsburg last year that at the time was the biggest land plot in Iowa for the time being but I think they are putting up a bigger one about 25 miles west in Spencer.

    Re: Casey's expansion

    The new one is about to open here in Clarence. The old one is/was pretty small and a little run down. Plus the old ladies who work there are crabby all the time.

    Tried to call and order pizza a couple of times and they don't answer the phone!

    The one I used to go to in Buffalo was awesome. Some of the best pizza I ever had came from there.


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.
