Vandalia won’t be home to a new Casey’s General Store gas station, unlike Huber Heights and other communities which are expected to soon be home to the growing convenience store chain with “famous” pizza.
Vandalia city council rejected a proposal to build a Casey’s in the city, said city spokesman Rich Hopkins.
The proposed Vandalia site was located at the National Road and Helke Road intersection, where a Shell station is already located, Hopkins said.
“The zoning in that area does not permit two gas stations on the same side of the street within 500 feet of one another and it does not permit a gas station within 200 feet of a residential zone,” Hopkins said. “The company asked for two variances, which council denied.”
In addition to Huber Heights, Casey’s is building additional locations in New Lebanon and Clayton.
The owner of the Flowerama store in Huber Heights said his location at 6007 Old Troy Pike is open for business for the next couple of months - including for Valentines Day - but will close pending a deal with Casey’s General Store to build a new gas station on the corner lot.
Casey’s, which markets itself as “Famous for Pizza,” has made a recent push into Ohio. The business is an ubiquitous staple in many rural Midwestern communities, especially in Iowa where it is headquartered.
Established in 1968, Casey’s General Stores Inc., (NASDAQ: CASY) operates more than 2,000 stores in 15 states. The company plans to build or acquire 90 to 120 stores in fiscal year 2018, according to its second quarter results.
