The 1950 Chevrolet truck stop in Las Vegas is in fact an icon of American life.
From 1950 to 1970, the truck stop was home to the city’s only black-owned store, the Chevy Motor City.
But in 2016, after decades of neglect, the brick and mortar storefront was sold to a Las Vegas-based developer, and now, the storefront is a strip club.
The strip club’s owners say they’ve been in business since 1983 and that they’re not worried about their future.
They say the strip club will keep its status and keep the truck stops going, even as the industry is facing challenges like the rise of ride-sharing services like Uber and the rise in ride-hailing and Lyft.
“We are not going to let this business die.
It’s a big business, it’s growing and it’s expanding.
We are not gonna die,” said George “Bud” Kuczma, president of the strip clubs company.
“We will keep working, and it will stay open.”
Las Vegas strip club owner Bud Kuczynski said his business is not going away.
He said the truck stand is a symbol of Las Vegas’ rich history.
“The truck stand was a part of the community, a part that people used to come to.
I would say it’s a good place to start.
You could start here and grow.
It will go on forever.
And we are going to keep doing what we are doing,” he said.
Kuczzynski says his business was the reason his customers were willing to pay for parking, and that he hopes his business will continue to grow.
“I’m not going anywhere.
We’ve been here for 20 years, and I’m going to continue to do what I’ve been doing,” said Kucszzynski.
