TEXAS CITY — It’ll have enough parking for 701 cars or trucks, 52 gas pumps, 30 cash registers and 41 bathroom stalls. Buc-ee’s Travel Store No. 33 at Interstate 45 South and Holland Road will no doubt be massive, but there’s one thing it won’t be — the biggest.

Despite city officials’ hopes to lure the world’s biggest convenience store to Texas City, final plans for Buc-ee’s show that the company’s 68,000-square-foot store in New Braunfels will still hold the world’s largest title.

Sorry, still don't understand the hysteria.

Are you kidding.
People will come from all over just to P at a Buc-ee's.

Sorry, cannot get excited about a Super Size Kwiki Mart.

So many things are and have been built between Galveston and big H to and fro on I-45...this used to be one of the remaining open spaces. Not any more.

I am in the camp of "whoopdeedo". Another place to spend $ on things you don't need and I "pass" on the crowds.

A 20 year tax cut brought a new business to TC.
TC will get more money because of this 20 year tax cut.
BUC-ee's will pay less property taxes but their paychecks will pay more.

A fantastic company and the cleanest of all convenience stores. They cater to the travelers interests, needs and comfort. A 7-11 can't begin to compare to any one of their stores.


Buc-ee's is tha' bomb!
