A new convenience store is on its way to downtown Overland Park. Casey’s joins a growing list of new tenants that opened in the popular retail area this year.

What’s going on? Renovations — including new signage with the company’s recently-updated logo — are underway on a space that will reportedly become a new Casey’s store at West 81st Street and Metcalf Avenue.

Where exactly: The store will open at 8055 Metcalf Ave., across from the former UMB Bank site.

  • As part of its first-floor retail component, the store will occupy a space at the Avenue 81 independent and assisted senior living facility.

Bigger picture: This is not the only recent expansion into Johnson County in the works for the Iowa-based gas and convenience store chain.

  • The company also intends to open a new store on Johnson Drive in downtown Mission. That project is in the early stages.
  • The new downtown Overland Park Casey’s would be the second one in town, but Johnson County is already home to quite a few Casey’s locations, including in Lenexa, Shawnee and Olathe.
  • Casey’s officials did not immediately respond to inquiries about when the store will open.
