ANKENY, IO - If you’re reading this page, we can only assume your interest was piqued by news of a recent convenience store acquisition. Casey’s General Stores has announced a strategic agreement to purchase 63 convenience stores from EG America, a subsidiary of EG Group.

Darren Rebelez, President and Chief Executive Officer of Casey’s General Stores“One of the key pillars in our strategic plan is to accelerate our store growth over the next three years and bring Casey’s to more communities,” said Darren Rebelez, President and Chief Executive Officer at Casey’s. “This opportunity is an excellent strategic fit as we look to add locations in Kentucky and Tennessee, which are both within our existing distribution footprint.

The 63 stores are located in Kentucky and Tennessee and currently operate under the Minit Mart and Certified Oil banners. As a press release noted, Casey’s is expected to retain the impacted employees at each store, and EG America is cooperating to make the transition as seamless as possible.
