DinDavie 37 Posted March 25, 2021 Report Share Posted March 25, 2021 OK so I got my shots, I'm retired but we still need to wear a mask out in public and we can't get into the Magic Kingdom because of it being the Easter Season. I had to get out of the house. You know you are bored silly when the only thing you can think of doing is going to a new gas station that's 45 miles away. And that's how we found ourselves at Buc-ee's. If you are traveling south to I-4 you will drive right by it. Exit onto LPGA Blvd which is just a few miles north of the I-4 turnoff. The place is huge. It has 104 fueling pumps and 53,000Sq ft of retail space inside the store. Gas is cheap by comparison. The price for regular at the Race Track station in Winter Springs on March 24,2021 is $2.79 and at Buc-ee's its $2.56. This is not a truck stop so you will not be competing with big rigs for space at the pumps but it you are driving a big Class A and towing a trailer you might want to rethink your visit. I did see Class A's getting gas however. Once you walk inside you understand where the real profits are made. It is a very efficiently run operation with well over 200 employee's. When I was in there at 1:00pm there were around 1000 customers looking at food, snacks, clothing, toys, and other household items. I like to think of myself as someone with strong control over my impulses but after only 1 hour in the place I had dropped over $120 not counting gas. In my defense I was with my wife. Try to imagine a giant Cracker Barrel inside a Bass Pro shops with an upscale surf shop and Texas BBQ. After sampling some of their signature sandwiches I think the BBQ Brisket sandwich will have you coming back on your return trip home. The only downside is they do not have any tables or seating so it is all take out. Did I mention that the rest rooms are huge, clean and they sell art work in them.
