Buc-ees, which isn’t your usual convenience/gas station store out of Texas is looking to expand in Georgia according to Tomorrow’s News Today. Some stores can be 60,000+ square feet and they are known for their immaculate restrooms and wide variety of products.
One store in San Antonio located off Interstate 35, holds the title of “largest convenience store in the world” and features 120 fuel pumps, 83 toilets, 31 cash registers, 80 fountain dispensers and 4 ICEE machines. This is not a truck stop and 18 wheelers aren’t allowed. One of the main benefit is that the restrooms are monitored 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, by uniformed employees whose sole responsibility is to keep them pristine. Now, that’s a reason to stop if you have to go!
TONE speculates that Buc-ee’s is likely to be looking in Georgia is in Locust Grove near the Tanger Outlets, given their preference for being near outlets, and since there are still large parcels available. Other potential areas could include places like Dalton (en route to Chattanooga or Nashville), Villa Rica (en route to Birmingham) and Lavonia (en route to Charlotte). Stay tuned as their plans for Georgia are revealed.
