Casey’s General Store has been serving the community of Leon for the past 37 years, originally coming to town in 1977. Casey’s has been located at their current location on Church Street since 1995. Additions to the current store were made in 2010, as well as again at the end of 2013 including a large extension to their parking lot. These additions have increased the services and products provided as well as the need for more employment.

Casey’s is currently under the direction of store manager, Stephanie Harger, who has worked for Casey’s the past fifteen years.  Starting her career with Casey’s while in high school, Stephanie worked her way through the ranks as assistant manager for six years, and now as manager for the past five. Stephanie has two children; Lexi who is nine, and Ridge who is five.

At Casey’s, they believe that true joy comes from helping others, and they make it a top priority striving to make the daily lives of their customers and their community better. Casey’s believes in giving back to their community and other meaningful causes. They offer financial support to numerous school and community events and projects, as well as other large-scale causes such as the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).

Not only do they endeavor to provide quick and friendly service, Casey’s also works to provide quality products for their customers. They offer a wide range of products including their world famous pizza, donuts, subs, coffee, soft serve ice cream, slushies, and more.  Whether it’s a breakfast, lunch, or dinner fix—maybe just a quick snack—they have it all! Casey’s has now also added diesel fuel to their pumps.

Although only located in fourteen states across the Midwest, Casey’s is the tenth largest convenience store chain, and also the fifth largest pizza chain.

We want to thank Stephanie and her entire crew for the continued hard work and dedication to the betterment of the Leon Community. Their support of numerous school and community projects do not go unnoticed. We are very fortunate to have a convenient place like Casey’s in town, and we look forward to many more years of success!
