Several Russellville residents have recently inquired about the temporary closing of Casey’s General Store located at 307 South Arkansas Avenue.

On Thursday, June 25, officials with the store released a statement concerning the closing.

Katie Petru, Director of Communications for Casey’s advised, “At Casey’s, the health and well being of team members and guests is our top priority. When we learned that a team member at the 307 South Arkansas Avenue store in Russellville tested positive for COVID-19, we immediately activated our response plan including temporarily closing the store and initiating a deep clean with a third-party cleaning provider. This was also the recommended guidance from the Department of Health and consistent with CDC guidelines.”

Petru continued, “The store is temporarily closed and will reopen once the necessary cleaning is complete and we can ensure the safety and availability of Casey’s team members to support daily operations.”
