Ever been to a Casey's General Store? The convince chain popular across Indiana and Illinois is planning its first location in Michigan.

According to an article in the Herald-Palladium, Casey's will be building right off I-94 at Exit 41 in Watervliet.

Casey’s General Store is purchasing nearly four acres, or about half, of the empty lot between Arnt Boulevard and Mill Creek Charlie’s.

Trustees said the site plan calls for a a driveway to enter the store on M-140, but vehicles will have to get back to M-140 using a driveway on Arnt Boulevard.

A time frame for construction was not given.

Casey’s General Stores, headquartered in Iowa, has stores all over the Midwest. In the past two years the chain has expanded to Kentucky, Tennessee and Ohio.

Currently the closest Casey's General Store locations are in Elkhart and Osceola, Indiana.
