Casey’s General Stores Inc. has entered into an agreement to purchase up to 19 convenience stores in Illinois owned by Harper Oil Co. Inc.
The stores are currently operated under the “On The Way” banner and will be rebranded to Casey’s. Harper, which owns other On The Way stores, plans to continue to operate its retained stores at locations throughout Illinois. The transaction is scheduled to close the week of Nov. 8.
“We are excited to purchase these Harper locations and work with their existing employees to integrate them into our business model,” said Robert Myers, president and CEO of Casey’s General Stores Inc. “These locations are a perfect fit for us operationally.”
