When I was growing up, T-REX-S was always a big deal in Nacogdoches. Tractors, side-by-sides, etc. They were always a big name in Nac. Just a few years ago, they changed their name to Big Tex Agriplex and moved out on the loop on Old Tyler Road.

This move left the original T-REX-S building vacant, and it's - basically - remained that way. I think it may have had a political party campaign headquartered in it at one point, but don't quote me on that.

It's still a pretty cool building though, and it seems a shame that it's vacant. So, that's when the gears started turning. What should go in the old building? A few of my thoughts are below:

    Arcade

    Whether you're a kid or an adult, this could be awesome to the city of Nacogdoches.

    Apple Store

    Any Apple Tech fans out there? I mean, it'd be a rather large store, but well worth it, right?

    Toys R Us

    This is another one that you don't necessarily have to be child to enjoy.

    H-E-B

    No justification needed.

    I mean, c'mon. Tell me this wouldn't be an awesome, AWESOME thing in Nac.

    Just kidding. I think Nac has reached the maximum number of those already. 10 is plenty.
