ANSONIA – Ansonia’s new Casey’s General Store is one of about 10 locations the Iowa-based company plans to open this year in western Ohio, says company spokesperson Bill Walljasper.
With several properties already in Indiana, Walljasper said “Ohio is a natural next step, a great opportunity to expand our stores. Typically we build in smaller communities, with fewer than 10,000 in population,” Walljasper explained, noting that some Casey’s locations are in communities with populations of around 3,500.
Casey’s General Store offers fuel and offers a variety of homemade food products made on-site, including pizza, subs and doughnuts and breakfast pizza. Typical convenience store items also are available.
The Ansonia location opened for business Thursday, March 30, and is planning a grand opening Friday and Saturday, April 7 and 8, said area supervisor Judy Rozelle.
“We’ll be open from 5 a.m. to midnight,” Rozelle said, and will be offering special pricing on pizzas, doughnuts as well as drawings and give-aways.”
Rozelle said customers also can download Casey’s app from www.Caseys.com to register for free fuel for a year. Click on the Coupons & Offers drop down box to find the link.
The Ansonia store will employee 20-22 employees, both full and part time, Walljasper said.
“We try to hire within the communities we are located in. And we will get heavily involved in the community. Employees know what’s going on in their community,” which is one reason Casey’s hires locally. “Look for us to be involved in the Ansonia community.”
Julie Price will be managing the Ansonia Casey’s, which is located at 117 N. Main St.
Other western Ohio locations currently include Union City, Ft. Loramie and Cridersville.
