Casey’s Completes Short Stop Acquisition

Ankeny, Iowa-based Casey’s General Stores Inc. has completed the acquisition of six convenience stores in Iowa owned by J.D. Carpenter Companies Inc.

The stores operate under the Short Stop banner and are expected to be immediately rebranded to Casey’s.

“After approaching Short Stop nearly three months ago, we were pleased with how smoothly the process went,” said Robert Myers, president and CEO of Casey’s General Stores Inc. “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.
