Snoqualmie Valley residents now have a new option when it comes to filling up their gas tanks and making other purchases.
After approximately a year of construction, on Monday, June 19th, the Snoqualmie Tribe’s new Crescent Market opened its doors to its first customers. As the new home of the former Snoqualmie Tobacco Company & Liquor Store, the Crescent Market has 12 fuel pumps, a quick service restaurant called ‘Crescent Kitchen,’ and a drive thru for customers to purchase tobacco products.
“Diversifying product categories in retail is something we are constantly striving to achieve,” says John Willson, Director of Retail Operations. “We will continue to offer our wide variety of liquor brands in addition to our new beer cave and growler fill station.”
The new market is part of the Tribe’s goal to create new job opportunities and help it diversify economically. Profit and tax revenue generated by the Crescent Market will support the Tribe’s government programs and services.
The new store is also opening with a management team consisting entirely of Snoqualmie Tribal Members, all who began working for the Tribe in 2011 when the Snoqualmie Tobacco Company first opened.
Crescent Market is 6,500 square feet and was designed to improve both the customer experience and the employee work environment. It has a large open floor plan, with the building complementing the design of the Snoqualmie Casino – including large wooden beams and other natural elements.
The Tribe is planning to hold its Grand Opening for the new Crescent Market next month on Tuesday, July 18th. The new store is located on the Snoqualmie Reservation at 37500 North Bend Way in Snoqualmie, Washington.
