Cantwell Food Mart

Longtime Nenana residents David and Nancy Shaw, and Alan and Kathie Shaw, obtained financing from National Bank of Alaska and AIDEA to build Cantwell Food Mart, a new retail convenience store and gas station. The Food Mart employs the equivalent of four full-time people in the winter and seven in the busier summer months. The convenience store and gas station takes advantage of heavy summer traffic bound to and from Denali, and also provides a pleasant community gathering site for local residents.
