If you're looking for a place to holdout during the impending zombie apocalypse, a gas station in Little Elm may be the place. RaceTrac is opening a new 6,000-square-foot compound in the burgeoning city just on the northeast side of Lake Lewisville.

The gas station, which, again, has 6,000 square feet of retail space alone, includes amenities like a walk-in beer cooler, indoor and outdoor seating, a 10 Swirl World frozen yogurt wall with a 40-plus topping buffet and free wireless Internet. This is all in addition to the more than 4,000 grocery items. See. Perfect for the zombie apocalypse.

Today they're celebrating in Little Elm with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Former Dallas Cowboy and MVP of Superbowl XXX Larry Brown will be on hand running interference.

The store is located at 2100 FM 423.

This type of store is dubbed "RT6K" by RaceTrac and is one of many slated for the DFW market.

Even if the zombie apocalypse is now a big government cover up, it'd still be a cool place to hang.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
