large_PXK52692_1632x2464XTR Gas & Go: CRIA’s XTR Gas & Go, formally the Co-op, officially opened on January 21, 2008. It is believed that we are the first such organization in Canada to own and operate this type of facility; operated by participants with staff support. Participants are taught retail, customer service and social skills as well as how to safely dispense petroleum products. Over the span of each month the majority of our participants are scheduled at the Gas Bar, and our employee roster continues to grow. The opportunity for community inclusive employment was well received among our participants and customers, and sales have continued to increase due to the support of our surrounding communities. We offer Regular gas, Diesel, a stock of automotive fluids, plus the benefits of full serve, we are striving to provide a service in this industry that is all too hard to find. With smaller full serve gas stations closing their doors at a rapid rate, we’re positive that if it weren’t for satisfied repeat customers we wouldn’t be as successful as we are today. Please stop by some time and take advantage of the benefits of full serve and give back to the community while assisting our participants to learn and acquire new skills and abilities.
