Meet Gitanmaax Development Corporation & Rob Garden, Market Manager
Gitanmaax Market is is one of several businesses owned and operated by the Gitanmaax Development Corporation. The vision of the Gitanmaax Development Corporation is “to restore and maintain healthy traditional community values while actively participating in the new economy.” The store itself was first envisioned more than 20 years ago. Though it took several years of planning, the store finally became a reality in 2014 thanks to the support of a variety of community partners. Gitanmaax Market employs approximately 50 to 60 staff at any given time and is the area’s largest employer.
Market manager Rob Garden is proud to be serving the community and believes that the store has tremendous potential, both economically and as a provider of long-term job security. Rob is committed to a mentorship model of employment, teaching and helping employees learn on the job and rise to the ranks of management, a philosophy that is very much in line with the Gitanmaax Development Corporation’s philosophy of business.
Not only does the store offer a viable and sustainable means of employment, it also provides an essential service to the area. It is the largest grocery store in the area, and residents no longer have to worry about traveling to other communities for food, medicines and other day-to-day needs.
Friendly. Courteous. Professional.
