Buc-ee’s buys land for second Va. location
Travel center chain purchased Rockingham land for $6.6M
A second Buc-ee’s Super Center is coming to Virginia along a busy stretch of highway in Shenandoah Valley near Mount Crawford.
Buc-ee’s Mt. Crawford LLC purchased 21.3 acres located at the intersection of Interstate 81 and Friedens Church Road in Rockingham County from Lispen LLC for $6.6 million, Norfolk-based S.L Nusbaum Realty announced Tuesday. Plans for the new location were revealed in July when the county posted on its Facebook page that the Texas-based travel center chain had applied for a special-use permit for review and approval of a sign plan.
Just like the New Kent location, the Buc-ee’s in Rockingham will feature up to 75,000 square feet of retail space, 120 fueling positions, electric vehicle chargers and parking for more 650 vehicles, including buses.
The Virginia locations are expected to be among the chain’s largest. A total of four centers are planned throughout the state.
S.L. Nusbaum Senior Vice President and Regional Director Nathan Shor and Vice President Larry Agnew represented the buyer in the transaction. Shor is Nathan Buc-ee’s exclusive real estate rep in Virginia.
Founded in 1982 in Lake Jackson, Texas, Buc-ee’s opened its first Texas-sized interstate travel center in 2003 and has since expanded to nearly 60 locations throughout the South.
