ANKENY, Iowa — Casey’s General Stores here said Thursday that it completed the acquisition of six Iowa convenience stores from J.D. Carpenter Cos., and that the stores, operating under the Short Stop banner, would be immediately rebranded to Casey’s.
“After approaching Short Stop nearly three months ago, we were pleased with how smoothly the process went,” Robert Myers, president and chief executive officer of Casey’s, said in a statement. “These are well managed, well maintained and high volume stores that fit perfectly into our business model and we are excited about the opportunity to integrate our prepared food program into these locations.”
The introduction of the prepared food program will begin in the next several weeks with plans to be fully integrated within six months from the closing date of this transaction.
