Update: Bahama Buck’s power is restored and they are now open, serving yummy shaved ice, smoothies and lemonades.
Bahama Buck’s is closed today as staff members clean up after an incident of vandalism Monday. Owner Jessica Pool, a Lake Highlands neighbor, says someone apparently seeking to steal copper cut and removed power lines at the tropical shaved ice shop and at several other businesses in Creekside shopping center, also home to Alamo Drafthouse.
“Our best hope is to be able to reopen late tomorrow (Wednesday) if we didn’t lose all our product and ice,” wrote Pool on social media. “Thank God for the cold weather today.”
Other tenants in the center report that full time security officers are working with Dallas police and using video footage to locate and capture the culprit(s).
Pool says the Bahama Buck’s team is committed to remaining in Lake Highlands, but she admits that such challenges are “a downer.” She’s struggling, too, to find and keep good employees in the current market.
“I thank everyone of you who have supported our store and hope you will all come back – next week perhaps,” she added.
Bahama Buck’s features a variety of snow cones, smoothies, sodas, lemonades and frozen coffee drinks. You’ll find their yummy menu here.
Bahama Buck’s is at 6780 Abrams #107, across from Top Golf.
