Building permits for two Casey’s General Stores have been filed in the Oklahoma City metro, with one to be constructed north of Mustang.
The Iowa-based convenience store and gas supplier have filed permits for the northwest corner of Cemetery Road and Reno and the southwest corner of Wilshire and Council in Oklahoma City. The permits include building plans for a Casey’s General Store along with a fueling canopy.
According to Michael Richardson, Vice President of Marketing, Casey’s is still completing their due diligence and anticipate to begin construction on the Cemetery Road location in July or August with a four to five month building period. Richardson also mentioned a Mustang Road site was being looked into north of Oklahoma City but did not give additional information due to pending negotiations.
