Miami Gas Bar

On November 1st 2017, the Big River First Nation and Lake Country Co-op entered into a new partnership. Lake Country Co-op is now managing the day to day operations of the Miami Gas Bar here on the Big River First Nation. During the first couple of months, Lake Country Coop management team along with Band Council worked hard to give the store a makeover which included renovated bathrooms, paint, shelving, paving, updated coffee station, as well as numerous equipment upgrades and landscaping.

The management team, along with employees are keeping the store clean and the shelves full with a great selection of products. The store has begun using the regular four page flyer program which runs every week with great promotions on a variety of products. The staff and management  of the Miami Gas Bar invites you to come check out the daily lunch specials and if you are just wanting a snack, the new roller grill is always filled with great tasting roller bites!
