Second Casey's Convenience Store Coming to South Kearney


A new Casey's location aims to bring more convenience to customers in south Kearney, but there are questions about the location.

The store will be on Talmadge Street just north of the Interstate-80 exit. It will be the sixth store in town, just a few blocks away from the one on South Second Avenue.

Officials say the close proximity of stores should be no problem.

"That will stay there. It's our intent for that to continue even though it's a smaller store, smaller lot, the store does very well for that location," said Casey's General Store CFO Bill Walljasper. "We think we can continue to have both of those locations up and operational to serve the community."

Walljasper says construction on the new store should be done in the next few months, barring weather issues, with no set opening date yet.
