Reviews for Squirrel Cove General Store
New Ownership - Great Place, 2016-10-29
Captain: , Ridgway (70)

The new management seems to be all up to speed on what it takes to make a good facility. They are eager to help and dedicated to meeting the needs of their customers. The general store has an amazing amount of inventory in both food, fresh vegitables and fruit, and hardware. The Flying Squirrel Take Out is especially good.

Squirrel Cove's General Store dock is located immediately in front of the store and just west of the public dock. The General Store Dock is suited for small boats. The dock is less than 50' long and is in shallow water.

The Good genera store has a good selection, for a small general store. Their fresh produce cooler has limited selection but what they do have is better quality than some general stores. Given their remote location and short season, the store does very well. There is a post office colocated and a BC Liquor Store as well.

Friendly people serving in the store. Great cold room for fresh vegetables and fruit. Good collection of wines. Be sure to check the prices on any local produce for these can be pricy.

Bought items here on 8-2-2013. Had milk but no wheat bread. Only one lonely loaf of white bread, so we bought the last 'Wonder' loaf. Lots of items in the store and they have a hardware department downstair. All in all, pretty good place to pick up a few items.

Great alternative to buying food in Refuge Cove, 2013-09-25
Captain: , Pender Harbour and Calgary (110)

Well supplied general store with marine hardware below. Also quite a few food options from tenants on the property, from fast food to cuisine with a view. Cold food from the store kept well, unlike food purchased at Refuge Cove store. Also offers a fuel dock though very low at low tide. Beware of wake on the govenment dock.

Great place to resupply, 2010-06-04
Captain: , Seattle, Wa. (312)

Great little place to resupply. They just about every you could need for a quick food resupply and prices are better than the store at refuge cove. They have Gas as well, oh and ice cream.
