And Just Like That, Buc-ee’s Is No More
A week ago, the smallest Buc-ee's ever popped up in the tiny West Texas town of Marathon, very similar to the Prada Marfa storefront. The news spread like crazy about the pop-up Buc-ee's store. No one knows how it got there, but it even got the attention of Buc-ee's corporation. They made sure to address one of the biggest things Buc-ee's is famous for: their bathrooms.
Jeff Nadalo, general counsel at Buc-ee's, also noted this lauded lavatorial accolade when asked to comment on the West Texas Buc-ee's.
"Buc-ee’s just recently became aware of the Buc-ee’s art installation in west rural Texas. While we have not visited the site, we do wonder whether they are keeping up with Buc-ee’s meticulous 24x7 bathroom-cleaning standards," Nadalo told the Midland Reporter-Telegram.
But I guess all good things must come to an end because as quickly as it appeared, Buc-ee's was gone. Visit Marathon Texas, believed it only to be a rumor that Buc-ee's was already gone:
It’s with great sadness that I report to you the rumor that the structure affectionately know as Tiny Buc-ee’s has succumbed to to the same fate that met “Target Marathon”.Again, as of right now, this news is still a rumor. We don’t know whether Tiny Buc-ee’s met its tragic end via wrecking ball , backhoe or bulldozer. But we do know that for 3 short days this tiny titan brought joy to the few who were lucky enough to set eyes upon her glory and take #selfies in order to share happiness and satire with the internet world.But please do come out to enjoy our beautiful sunrises and sunsets, our magnificent dark skies, wonderful restaurants and shops, laid back vibes and lovely community.
Tiny Bucee’s, if the rumor of your demise is in fact true, you will be missed. May you Rest in Pieces.
