I’ve had Sheetz and Wawa. No thank you. QT is a bit better. Bucee’s is fairly decent. Wouldn’t call it good but probably on par with if not better than QT. Oh and I’m just talking about food. Buccee’s is a big gas station, but a gas station is a gas station to me, even when they have a huge tchotchke store as part of the deal.

I can't find the whole thing online, but Chapelboro has a bit more from the Chamber of Commerce statement:

Quote:
“We should strongly consider the importance of correcting the socioeconomic disparity between Northern Orange and our neighboring towns south of I-40. We need to fully understand that the terrain is different here, both literally and figuratively and allow for the influence of our strong agricultural setting as an important factor.”

The article has some good points from other folks like the Voice for Efland & Orange group and the Orange County Commissioners. https://chapelboro.com/news/developm...tation-failure

Ok, let’s not get carried away. Not having a huge gas station is not the downfall of Orange County.
