Buc-ee’s continues to expand the footprint of its mega convenience stores. The retailer will build a new location in Rockingham County, Virginia, according to a county official. The store will be the second Buc-ee’s in the state, joining a location being built in New Kent County.
The location is planned to come in at 74,000 square feet with 120 fueling locations and 24 EV charging stations. The retailer is requesting a special use permit for its signage. The county says that the location will open in 2025, according to local station WLOX.
When the New Kent County location was announced, the county’s economic development department shared a statement via Facebook from Buc-ee’s: “Buc-ee’s Travel Center is a family-focused travel center featuring a wide range of freshly prepared foods, including home-crafted BBQ, custom-made sandwiches, fresh salads and fruits, baked goods and sweets as well as a unique collection of gifts, housewares, clothing and weekend getaway gear. Buc-ee’s is open 24/7 and provides our guests with the cleanest restrooms and friendliest staff to be found anywhere. Buc-ee’s is not a truck stop; 18-wheelers are not allowed on the property. Buc-ee’s is a one-of-a-kind destination. Buc-ee’s will employ (full time with benefits) over 175 residents earning an average minimum wage of $16-18 per hour.”
In April, Florida governor Ron DeSantis celebrated the opening of a new location in that state.
