Casey’s General Stores recently acquired several Kum and Go Convenience Stores in Marion County and they’ll be opening soon. The two Knoxville Kum and Go’s that will become a Casey’s on November 8th, and in Pella the Kum and Go on Washington Street will open as a Casey’s on the 15th. Bill Walljasper, Casey’s CFO, says that generally employees are retained during the transition. Another concern expressed by the Pella City Council was the hours after the transition, since the Kum and Go was the only 24 hour convenience store in Pella. Walljasper says the hours will stay the same, and furthermore, they are working to expand the number of Casey’s General Stores that are open 24 hours, including locations in Marion County.
