Owned by its members, Peninsula Co-Op shares profits from its grocery, petroleum, and convenience stores with its members and the larger community. Beginning with a simple Food Centre on Keating Cross Road in 1977, the burgeoning co-op expanded into fuel services and now operates 14 gas centres throughout the area. Members receive a rebate on all petroleum purchases made throughout the year, and the original Food Centre offers a full service deli, bakery, and host of local and national-brand meat, produce, and groceries. Peninsula also keeps homes running with access to heating fuel and frees cars from grime with a full-service car wash. Each visit channels profits back into community enterprises, and affords a chance to rub elbows with Cooper, the co-op's mascot and quality-control expert for all salmon and honey.
Mobil 1 Lube Express in Duncan is a brand new facility that uses tried and true Mobil oil products, which have been around for over a century and keeps all sorts of vehicles in prime condition?from the family car to high performance Formula 1 race cars. The signature oil change, which only takes about 10 minutes, includes 5 litres of conventional or synthetic Mobil oil. However, the shop's technicians can also use Pennzoil, Valvoline, or Total oil for customers whose cars say it's okay. Each oil change also includes a 21-point inspection. Drivers can opt for additional services such as transmission or power-steering flushes, Interstate-brand battery replacements, or Insight wiper-blade installations. The locally owned and operated Mobile 1 Lube Express supports their community by participating in events and fundraisers.
