Is Our Long John Silvers In Lufkin Going To Merge With The New Taco Bell? 

There is a new Taco Bell going up on the other side of Popeye's in Lufkin. This location will replace the one further down Timberland Drive.

The Long John Silvers in Lufkin is a little dated, so it got me to thinking that they could merge just like the ones in Tyler. Then I also noticed that the company that owns our Taco Bell in Lufkin is based out of Tyler, so the ones that closed could be owned by the same company.
