Casey's General Store coming to Auburn.

Casey's General Store coming to Auburn.

Starting in July residents of Auburn should begin seeing additional growth at the corner of KY 103 and US 68-80.

The rumor of a convenience store in this area has been circulating through the small town for some time. However, according to CK and Jana Hanks, who sold the property to Casey's General Stores Inc., construction should begin next month.

"We are so excited to see the growth happening in Auburn," said Hanks. "This is going to be great for the people who live here and around the area, as well as those coming through on 68-80. This type of growth brings economic dollars to our city."

The Hanks' have been instrumental in helping to bring new businesses to Auburn. They include Subway, Dollar General, Auburn Health Clinic, Heartland Family Pharmacy, Auburn Auto Parts and soon to be Solaz Teca Mexican restaurant.

Final touches are being made for the restaurant opening, furniture is being delivered, and many are waiting on pins and needles for the grand opening.

"We are proud to have all these businesses on our Sugar Maple property," said Jana.

Casey's first showed up in Logan County in 2017 with a store at 490 West 9th Street in Russellville. In December, Casey's celebrated with the Russellville site being its 2,000th store.

The Russellville location is 4,600-square-feet and is open daily from 5 a.m. until midnight.
