Buc-ee’s will unveil its new travel center in Leeds, Alabama, on Monday, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 11 a.m. The celebration will be attended by local leaders including Mayor David Miller, Lee Barnes, Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors member Johnny Brunson, Scott Barnes, city zoning administrator Brad Watson and city clerk Toushi Arbitelle.

The new Buc-ee’s is at the junction of the I-20 and 78 Junction across the street from Bass Pro Shop.

Buc-ee’s in Leeds is more than just another gas station. Buc-ee’s occupies more than 53,250 square feet and offers 120 fueling positions just outside its store with thousands of snack, meal and drink options for travelers on the go.

The new travel center promises that it features award-winning restrooms, cheap gas, quality products and excellent service.

Buc-ee’s also features Texas barbeque, homemade fudge, kolaches, Beaver nuggets, jerky and fresh pastries.

Buc-ee’s was founded in 1982 and now has 38 stores across Texas, including the world’s largest convenience store. Buc-ee’s began its multi-state expansion in 2019, with a store in Loxley, Alabama. Buc-ee’s opened its first store in Georgia in 2020, then broke ground on its first South Carolina outpost, and plans to open its first Florida travel center later this year.
