Update:

It’s official, the Buc-ee’s mega gas station won’t be bringing its beaver nuggets to Corinth – after dozens of folks showed up at Thursday night’s mega-marathon City Council meeting which lasted for six long hours.

And it seemed like the big message from this small suburb was: Not in my backyard, Buc-ee’s!

“Beaver has developed a store model that works great in these areas, but Corinth is not one of these places,” one council member said.
Corinth homeowners got what they wanted, in a 3-2 vote.

“I think council has spoken,” Arch Aplin III said. Aplin is the owner of Buc-ee’s. “They don’t want a Buc-ees in Corinth so we’ll move on down the road and find something else on I-35.”

Sounds like it wasn’t meant to bea-ver.
