Port gas station re-opens Saturday

  • Mar. 14, 2012 10:00 a.m.

There’s good news for residents of Port Clements this week. The village’s only gas station, which closed last summer, is re-opening Saturday.And there’s a surprise! It’s going to be run by the Nyeholt family, the former owners.Elaine Nyeholt operated the business from the mid 1980s until 1999, when it was leased, then sold in 2003. She and husband Richard and daughter Dana are back this time to get the business open again.Having to travel at least 40 km for gas has been difficult for Port residents.”It’s hard on everybody,” Ms Nyeholt said, “Betty Dalzell told me the gas station closing is probably the worst thing that has ever happened to Port Clements.”Aside from “being open and having gas”, something that wasn’t a sure thing in the months before the station closed under the previous owners, the coffee shop will be open as well.The business opens on Saturday with gas and coffee available, will close on Sunday, then be open Monday to Saturday from 10 am to 6 pm.”If you missed it, support it,” Ms Nyeholt said, “We are trying re-establish the integrity. Integrity is important to us.”
