Iowa-based firm hopes to build grocery, gas station at site of former antiques store

    Plans are in the making for a new convenience store and gas station to be built on vacant property in the Village of Fredonia.
    Casey’s General Store wants to build on a parcel at 281 Hwy. 57, which has been listed for sale. A building on the site previously held an antiques store.
    Village Trustee T.J. Meyers-Jansky, chairman of the village’s Economic Development Committee, said in October that the village would like to have a small grocery store at the location to sell staple and specialty items.
    “A grocery or bakery is a convenience many residents miss and would like to have back,” she said. “The role of the Economic Development Committee is to make the best infrastructure decisions to promote the health and wealth of our community, which is job No. 1.”
    Casey’s is based in Iowa and operates a chain of convenience stores, most of which are in the Midwest and the  Dakotas. The firm  has approximately 20 stores in Wisconsin.
    ARC Design Resources is Casey’s consultant for the project’s engineering and surveying work.
    ARC Project Manager Ryan Swanson said the existing property will likely be razed to build the convenience store.
    “The property is a single, ranch-style residence that would be demolished and a new proposed site would be developed,” he said.
    Swanson said there is no timeline for the start of the project.
    “We’re pretty early in our process right now, and we just got things started with the village,” he said.
    “As we move forward, we’ll know more about what kind of permits we will need and other things of that nature.”
    Casey’s officials could not be reached  for comment.
