The Casey’s General Store in downtown Marquette closed this week for demolition, leaving the community without a convenience store until a new, larger store opens this fall.

According to the company, the new 3,400-square-foot store is anticipated to open in early October, directly behind the location of the current store. Construction of the store has been underway for over a month.

Casey’s took over ownership of the existing convenience store, which was formerly a Go America store, in October 2013. Since then, the company has looked for ways to enlarge the store’s space to accommodate all its food and beverage offerings, particularly the made-from-scratch pizza program.

The new store, said Casey’s, will offer expanded fountain selections, a larger coffee and cappuccino bar, more coolers, made-to-order subs and, of course, the chain’s popular pizza.

The area in front of the new store will hold six gas pump islands.
