A Texas Staple Will Open World’s Largest Convenience Store in Tennessee
Buc-ee's is set to open its largest store to date, in Tennessee.
I’m not sure how I’m feeling about this, but apparently Buc-ee’s, a Texas staple, feels that everything needs to be bigger in TENNESSEE! But why?
Was it something I said, or didn't say? Why would Buc-ee's want to build the world's largest convenience store in Tennessee?
Let me remind the powers that be at Buc-ee's of Texas' unofficial motto: "Everything is Bigger in Texas."
I'm kidding of course, and glad to see Buc-ee's expanding into Tennessee and other states like Kentucky, Mississippi and South Carolina. Now travelers from all over the country can find out what us in Texas have known for a long time, Buc-ee's is a great place to stop, fuel-up, grab some Beaver Nuggets, and "Potty Like a Rock Star!"
Yep, ask anyone who travels and has stopped at a Buc-ee's along the way and they'll tell you, not only can you find just about any of your favorite road snacks, but also some fresh BBQ, a wall of candy, isles of snacks and the cleanest bathrooms anywhere. They're probably cleaner than the one at your house.
According to WBIR, the new "World's Largest Convenience Store" will be in Sevier County along Sevierville’s Interstate 40 Exit 407 and will be 74,000 square feet. It will have 120 fuel pumps, an EV Charging station, a 250 foot long car wash, and will serve millions of people coming and going into the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
It's expected to be finished and open for business in 2023. Until then, Texas can still lay claim to the "World's Largest Convenience Store" with it's location in New Braunfels.
So congrats to Tennessee, and welcome to the world of Buc-ee's.
You're going to love it!
