Mission: Meeting the needs and wants of consumers in the Qikiqtani region and being the retailer of choice with the most reasonable price point.
The company was formed in 1999 when QC purchased the Baffin Gas Bar and the Beach Gas Bar from the Kakivak Association. The Beach Gas Bar was closed a few years later. Since that time the company has expanded operations to include the Baffin Deli and Coffee Shop in the Igluvut Building.
The Gas Bar often is the first employer a young Inuit person has while still in school. It provides fuel, convenience products and cleaning supplies. Each year they facilitate a sealift program for customers to stock up on non-perishables. Conveniently located on the beach access road it is a popular stop for people heading out on the land or out to sea.
The Baffin Deli and Coffee Shop, opened five years ago, provides lunches, snacks and coffee daily to people in the downtown area. They also do some fabulous catering for meetings and events. Recently they started providing rotisserie chickens for take-out and some excellent gourmet cheeses.
In addition to this, as a service, they operate several ATM machines throughout the City and vending machines at select locations. Baffin Gas Limited is historically involved in bidding on tenders to supply government with goods as needed.
In late 2014 the company will once again see expansion as it opens another location in Iqaluit. The Plateau Convenience store is being promoted as the ‘Cadillac’ and will provide local residents with “premium” coffee, snacks and other must haves.
