That is part of the deal....they ARE putting a store right in the middle of campus

"The center will include outdoor and indoor student recreational space, as well as retail and food service areas managed by students and faculty through the educational programs."

As long as they have a Buccees statue out front it'll be a real Buccees and likely get more photo opportunities than the 12th man or other statues on campus

Wish we could have their cheap gas.

Oh well. At least we're getting a Costco.

You can still get them at Stripes. Just as good. They even have a sign for them.

The $50 million donation really fooled me into thinking he had already made money hand over fist.

No matter how much you wish it, a full blown Buccees here won't make REMOTELY what the stores they've recently built and are building. The demand here just can't compete with major interstate traffic.

Welp, maybe when we get the interstate. I still remember when folks on here said we'd never get a Costco.

I doubt there are any interstates coming anytime soon. Feds are not managing well.

It will happen the same year the loop around BCS is finished and the high speed rail has a stop nearby.
