DENTON –Monday, the highly anticipated Buc-ee's on I-35 in Denton opened, and residents are going nuts.
Since the opening, the lines are never-ending, any time of the day or night you can drive by and see their parking lot full.
The location has been under construction for two and a half years, according to general manager, Jeff Hand and he's as excited as anyone that the site is finally open.
The opening brings a stimulus to the Denton economy, Buc-ee's will provide jobs, and their starting salary is 15 dollars per hour plus health benefits.
Although the Buc-ee's provides a new option for gas and snack and high-paying entry-level jobs, some people still worry about its location.
Anybody trying to enter I-35 after Lillian miller heading south will tell you that the traffic pattern there is challenging to maneuver. Many people are concerned the traffic from Buc-ee's is only going to make it worse.
"I work at DFW airport, and I don't have to work until noon every day, and I still hit traffic leaving Denton when I'm trying to get on 35 and Buc-ee's is only going to add to the slow down." Said Jessica Alburdy Denton Resident
Ms. Alburdy also said that she loves Buc-ee's and that the opening will provide job opportunities for college students.
The consensus is that Denton is happy with the new addition.
