Downtown Amarillo Is Getting A Toot N Totum Store
If you are from Amarillo or grew up around here, then Toot n Totum is a familiar name and sight. They are all over. Now they are gearing up to open a Toot n Totum in downtown Amarillo.
With all the talk of renovation, it was only a matter of time before downtown was blessed with a convenience store. It only makes sense. Many people travel through Amarillo by way of downtown. Gas, potty breaks, and snacks are a good reason to stop. Well now they can stop it downtown Amarillo.
Toot n Totum officials presented a proposal to the Downtown Urban Design Review Board to open a store downtown. The store would be built on 10th Avenue between Pierce and Buchanan and would contain a gas station.
On Monday, the board discussed it. And after much talk between the board, TNT officials and the public a vote was cast. The board approved the proposal with a 6:3 vote.
Now that it is approved, the next step is for the board to sign a Certificate of Appropriateness
. Once this is done, the contractor can apply for building permits. There is no official word on when construction will begin, but I don't see it being to far away.
I, personally, think it is a good idea to have a convenience store downtown. What do you think? Are you excited to have a Toot N Totum in downtown Amarillo?
