New Winners World opens
In January 2019 connected restaurant will open
Representatives from Acadia First Nation and officials from three levels of government celebrated the grand opening of the new Winners World on Starrs Road in Yarmouth on Nov. 30.
The 6,000-square-foot building will employ close to 32 staff. A gaming centre in the rear with private access contains 22 VLT machines.
The gas bar and 2,200-squarefoot convenience store serve fresh coffee, gas/furnace oil, cigarettes, take-out foods and a large variety of merchandise.
Indigenous Services Canada provided $1 million for this project through the Community Opportunities Readiness Program.
In January 2019 Winners One Stop Restaurant will open, with seating for 79 people, a dairy bar, fresh seafood, Acadian specialties
and much more. An outdoor patio will be connected to the restaurant.
“We are excited for the opening of the Winners World gas bar and what it will bring to our community and to the region,” said Chief Deborah Robinson, Acadia First Nation. “It is our goal, as Chief and Council, to create economic opportunities for our people and we know that through the support of the Federal Government and our community members, Winners World will prove to be a huge success for Acadia First Nation.”
The former Winners World will be torn down and economic opportunities are being considered for the site.
“I’m delighted to see the expansion of Acadia First Nations’ Your Winners World Gas Bar. This expansion will be an economic driver and will create new jobs for Acadia First Nation,” said West Nova MP Colin Fraser. “I am proud that our Government supports our First Nation communities in reaching their full potential and I look forward to more great achieve- ments by Acadia First Nation.”
