The new Gas bar and convenience store is being constructed on the existing footprint that was in the past occupied by the old Save-on-Gas. This project when completed will feature an expanded gas bar and convenience store with hot foods, cold treats and a large selection of grocery, confectionary, health and beauty and seasonal/hardware items will be available. The development will also contain two state of the art two bedroom living units located on the second floor of the building. The exterior of the building will match the West coast style of the surrounding architecture. We look forward to the completion of this project and serving new and existing members in and around the Parksville area.
