Charles City, Iowa – Casey’s General Stores has announced the planned closure of their 1007 Gilbert Street location early next month.
According to a release, the decision to close the store was made from a routine strategic evaluation that Casey’s performs to consider the needs of each community they operate in. The Blunt Parkway location was remodeled in recent years, where Casey’s expanded the offerings to incorporate a full line of services and products consistent with their largest and most recent store builds. The release says Casey’s felt the expansion of the offerings and size of that store was the best way to serve the community, and ultimately lessened the need for the 2nd store.
The store will close effective 11pm on Sunday February 4th. Employees at that location will be transferred to the other Charles City store.
