Places like Cline's Corners developed out of necessity. 60 years ago, cars needed more gas, more water and more service. 60 years ago people needed more breaks as well, no A/C, bad seats, bad shocks, etc. Nowadays it is easy to zip from Amarillo to Albuquerque, in 1950, not so much. Travelers have changed, and so have retailers.
This is a tourist trap and a damn "good" one. Get out and stretch your legs but keep your expectations in check and your money in your wallet. OK.... maybe get a NM keychain and a rubber tomahawk, but no more.
