Hold on to your beaver nuggets, Florida may be getting another Buc-ee’s, according to a report from Treasure Coast Newspapers.
While not officially announced, the fourth location is expected to be built along Interstate 95, near Fort Pierce.
A conceptual plan obtained by TCPalm states “Buc-ee’s — Fort Pierce, FL” and “Buc-ee’s, Ltd.”
St. Lucie County officials hosted a pre-application meeting in July for a “travel center/fueling station,” according to Benjamin Balcer, who directs the county Planning and Development Services Department.
The travel center could include 73,000 square feet of retail space, 733 parking stalls, 11 bus parking stalls and 120 fueling stations, according to county records.
