Texas City, TX — The Houston Chronicle is reporting; a crowd of people waited for hours outside the new Buc-ee's in Texas City Wednesday morning, all wanting to be the first inside when the doors opened.
General Manager Shawn Humpert said there were a few hundred people waiting to get in to the 60,000-square-foot convenience store before dawn. A giant inflatable beaver, the chain's mascot, sat outside just under the store's towering sign.
