NEW BRAUNFELS — At 11 a.m. sharp Monday, workers pulled aside the driveway barricades and 100 or more waiting cars flooded into New Braunfels’ new Buc-ee’s, the popular chain’s largest store.

Kent Taylor was among the first drivers to pull up to one of the 60 gas pumps at the $7.4 million Buc-ee’s Travel Center at I-35 and Farm-to-Market Road 306.

    Nothing wrong with capitalism. Those folks run a class outfit, no question about it. The comment concerned traffic. By the time all the medical offices east of I-35 get finished, that intersection will be a parking lot again like it used to be.

    [beam] I am so happy that they have come to town! I live in Round Rock and the closest one to me is in Luling, Texas. I am so proud of Beaver Aplin III and all of the jobs that his company are bringing to town! What a GREAT AMERICAN! The town should welcome all of the new traffic and money! What an amazing opportunity. Any negativity expressed, must be from people who dont believe in Capitalism. YEAH BUC-EES!!! YEAH Beaver Aplin III!!!!!!
