    Casey's to Buy 22 Kum and Go Stores

    One Iowa-based convenience store chain is buying 22 stores from another, including a few stores located in north-central Iowa. Ankeny-based Casey's announced they have signed an agreement to purchase the stores from the West Des Moines-based Kum & Go chain. The purchase price was not disclosed. Casey's says most of the stores are in rural locations and will fit into their business model. The company has some 15-hundred stores. Kum & Go issued a statement that the profits of the sale will be reinvested in their remaining 400 stores. Casey's says the stores involved will be switched over as soon as the sale is complete. The stores are in Armstrong, Atlantic, Britt, Brooklyn, Carroll, Cedar Falls, Elk Run Heights, Garner, Iowa Falls, Mediapolis, St. Charles, Storm Lake, Washington, Chariton and two each in Centerville, Cherokee, Estherville, and Sheldon.

    Re: Casey's to Buy 22 Kum and Go Stores

    Interesting on the Britt and Garner purchases.

    Casey's has another location in those communities, although that location is off of the highway while the Kum and Go is on the highway.

    Makes you wonder if they purchased those stores to close some of their competition.

    Osage has 2 Casey's as well. Has for at least 5 years. The idea was that they were going to squeeze out the Kwik Star (MN based chain) in the middle of town, but turns out all 3 stores have been able to do pretty well.

    I think Osage is a bit bigger than Britt or Garner - I'm sure that both towns can support 2 convenience stores (they have for years), but I'm not sure why Casey's would want to own both.

    Osage only has about 500 more people than Garner. Granted, that can make the difference here.

    And remember, Krause's are huge EIU fans/supporters.....put money in KnG's pockets to send it along to the Hawks. I wish casey's would do the same but for the good guys in Ames!

    Caseys ruined the Short Stop at Beaver/Douglas in Des Moines. That place was always very clean and well stocked. Now it is always dirty and poorly stocked. 2 out of the 3 urinals in the mens room have been broken for over a month and the bathroom smells like ****.
