‘We sup­port lo­cal and we’re lo­cal’

They still carry Irv­ing prod­ucts such as oil and gaso­line. Along with this, the group sup­ports lo­cal prod­ucts. “We sup­port lo­cal and we’re lo­cal,” said Ni­cole. Bartlett’s is one of the only sta­tions in the re­gion who have a full ser­vice op­tion, and the only lo­ca­tion that of­fers propane pump­ing.

Other sta­tions of­fer the tank ex­change, but noth­ing like what Bartlett’s can.

The oper­a­tion has grown over the years, start­ing with a two-bay ser­vice sta­tion op­er­ated by John Bartlett and one me­chanic and the con­ve­nience store op­er­ated by Mau­reen and one store clerk. It has since ex­panded to 10 ser­vice bays and close to 30 em­ploy­ees.

The ser­vice also has a rep­u­ta­tion of be­ing a huge sup­porter of lo­cal or­ga­ni­za­tions.

Staff and cus­tomers

A key to the suc­cess of Bartlett’s, and some­thing that has been present for all 30 years, is its ded­i­ca­tion to staff — cur­rent and past — for their loyal and ded­i­cated ser­vice, as well as the cus­tomers who keep com­ing back.

“We’re so thank­ful for their sup­port over the past 30 years,” said Ni­cole.

The con­ve­nience store of­fers a va­ri­ety of prod­ucts from movie rentals, cold beer, ice, lunch counter with a va­ri­ety of sand­wiches, cof­fee, cap­puc­cino, hot dogs, and soft serve ice cream in eight flavours.

Bartlett’s Auto Ser­vice opens 8 a.m. ‘til 5 p.m. Mon­day to Fri­day.

Bartlett’s Con­ve­nience Store is open seven days a week from 5 a.m. to mid­night; 6 a.m. to mid­night Sun­days.

SOME­THING FOR EV­ERY­ONE: The con­ve­nience store at Bartlett’s of­fers a va­ri­ety of prod­ucts from hot and cold bev­er­ages, lunch counter with a se­lec­tion of sand­wiches, fish­ing & camp­ing sup­plies, soft serve (8 fla­vors), ice, cold beer, etc. to their new­est item – a hot dog roller grill.

FRIENDLY STAFF: Bartlett’s is known for their warm and wel­com­ing con­ve­nience store staff. Trista Sharpe is just one of those who greet cus­tomers as they walk through the doors.
