Glooscap Landing Highway Gas & Convenience Store

Glooscap Landing is a highway retail business centre located at Exit 8A on Highway 101 in Kings County, Nova Scotia. The 26-acre plot of land is entrenched in the history and legends of Glooscap, a Mi’kmaq spiritual leader. Throughout history this region has been an attraction for tourists and locals interested in agriculture, sea tides, and the cultures of the Acadians and Mi’kmaw people. Glooscap Landing is owned by the Glooscap First Nation community located 10km away and the purpose of Glooscap Landing is to create more employment, resources, and general economic prosperity to Glooscap and the surrounding communities.

A recent feasibility study conducted by Stantec Consulting in conjunction with Altus Group has determined that a gas bar and convenience store located on this property would enjoy a competitive advantage in relation to other retail centers located along the 101 highway. The project is being developed in three phases; with the gas bar/convenience store being the first to be built. In addition, there are ongoing discussions with a national coffee distributor to be located within the complex. While the gas bar and convenience store would be owned and operated by Glooscap Ventures, the intention is to lease space to the coffee retailer.
