The Snoqualmie Indian Tribe’s newest enterprise is more than just a convenience store and gas station situated near its gaming attraction Snoqualmie Casino, Seattle’s closest casino boasting 1,700 slots games, 50-plus gaming tables, poker room, live entertainment and fine dining.
The 12-pump station and store will offer a deli, market, beer cave and drive-up window for tobacco. The splashier venue will ultimately replace the neighboring Snoqualmie Tobacco Company and Liquor Store, which will remain open during construction.
Scheduled to open in late 2016, the Tribe celebrated with a groundbreaking ceremony on Thursday, May 12. The tribe also released a concept illustration of the store, designed by Helix Design Group in Tacoma.
“This is an exciting new enterprise for the Snoqualmie Indian Tribe that will build on our values of responsible development while offering new options for travelers and visitors,” said Snoqualmie Tribal Chairwoman Carolyn Lubenau. “Through this project, we look forward to serving the community of Snoqualmie and the members of our Tribe while contributing to the economy of the Snoqualmie Valley.”
The Snoqualmie Indian Tribe is a federally recognized tribe in the Puget Sound region of Washington State. Known as the People of the Moon, Snoqualmie tribal members were signatories to the Treaty of Point Elliott in 1855. The Tribe owns and operates the Snoqualmie Casino in Snoqualmie, WA.
