Yesterday I heard the news that we were getting a Five Below in Lufkin. It's going into the South Loop Crossing shopping center off of Loop 287 in the Fall of 2021. If you shopped at Bed Bath & Beyond, then you know exactly where it will be.

I was pumped we were getting a new business so quickly in this location. It's only been vacant since December of 2020 when Bed Bath & Beyond closed.

Then I realized I had no idea what a Five Below even was. The concept is pretty interesting. It's a modern day play on the old dollar store type concept. Everything there is supposed to be around $5 and below.

It will be a clean and bright store. With crazy things inside like Taco Bell inflatable pool toys. Things for the house, beauty items, pet accessories, and Sharper Image type gadgets.

If you were wondering where you were going to buy your next color changing LED shower head, this will be your first stop. It will go great with your new solar fairy string lights.

After doing some research, it really seems like Five Below will remind you of the type of items you might see when leaving TJ Maxx or Burlington Coat Factory. Just much more, an entire store full of it.

I went by there this morning to take a few pictures and noticed they were unloading a scissor lift to get started on the inside renovations to transform the property inside. That might just be wishful thinking. They might have used it yesterday to put up the banner on the storefront.

This could be your new favorite store in Lufkin. Hopefully it will be here in time for Halloween, they really do it up.
