Casey’s General Store hopes to begin constructing a new store in Marquette early this fall, according to James Pistillo, vice president of accounting and treasurer for the company.
Casey’s took over ownership of the convenience store, which was formerly a Go America store, in Oct. 2013. Since then, Pistillo said the company has looked for ways to enlarge the store’s space to accommodate all its food and beverage offerings.
“At one point, early on after the acquisition, the plan was to just remodel the existing store,” he said, “but that plan changed, and now it is scheduled to be rebuilt new from the ground up.”
