Buc-ee’s Groundbreaking August 23

The mega-convenience store chain Buc-ee’s plans to break ground on their new Springfield travel center on August 23rd.

According to a press release issued from the company, Stan Beard of Buc-ee’s says, “Springfield is the Birthplace of Route 66, it’s perfectly natural that Buc-ee’s, the ultimate road-trip destination, is coming to this gorgeous stretch of Americana history. We are delighted to be a part of this community and excited to make Springfield our first stop in Missouri.” 

The ceremony will be held at 12 PM and attended by local leaders.
