I'm siding with g-man on this one. No reason for Buccees to pay to advertise something that is hundreds of miles/several hours away and 95% of the people viewing those advertisements would never drive that far due to the sign.

Plus it doesn't really say exactly where the location is at that they are advertising.

Actually, they do give the miles to the nearest one, its like 190 something miles.

Yes I knew what the sign said. Let's be honest, how many people see that sign and say "hey kids, hold your pee, we're going to Bucee's in 190 miles!!"

Also, since we are being honest, how many people really know what a Bucee's is?

My whole point last year was does Bucees pay for those signs every time they open a new location. I have no plans to drive to Anderson, let alone 188 miles away to pee in an oversized dollar store.

Buccee quick expansions everywhere will be its downfall. Sooner or later it will just be your average gas station that you could find at every interchange. I was just at the Buccee in Richmond KY, and found that their prices were insanely expensive. $9 for a brisket sandwhich. $3 for 20oz coke.

You're probably right about that. QT was so hot in this area when they first came and for a several years. I have noticed that things are starting to cool a bit for them, even though they are still expanding (which could be part of the reason certain stores are not as busy as before). QT prices have gone up quite a bit as well, but that's a struggle with all convenience stores and fast food outlets.

I have always thought convenience stores are too high. That's where they make their money and you are paying a premium for the convenience of it. When I was a kid we lived in a small town that had a "Pantry" Store. The prices on snacks and candy were always twice the price of the local supermarket.

You mean like South of the Border having billboards from Virginia to Georgia?

Or The largest ball of twine having billboards.. Or the Mystery Spot. Or the Jack Rabbit Trading Post on Route 66..

You have to know that Buccees knows what they are doing with advertising.
