Longhouse Market & Deli
Updated May 2008
The groundbreaking for the Longhouse Market and Deli took place on May 12, 2007. Construction
began in August for the Jamestown S'Klallam Tribe's Longhouse
Market and Deli, located at the former site of Dicky Bird's Tavern in Blyn.
The project was completed May of 2008.
The Longhouse Market and Deli is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The market will feature fresh produce and seafood in season, a
walk-in cigar humidor and tobacco shop, Raven Wine and Spirits shop
and the Harvest Deli in addition to traditional groceries.
The 11,000 square foot store will reflect the Jamestown aesthetic
seen throughout the Tribal campus in Blyn. Three new totem
poles were carved by Tribal artist Dale Faulstich and his
crew, for the front of the building. Inside, natural wood
with copper accents, satin black shelving and stone countertops
promise a sleek sophisticated feel.
Many months of negotiations have successfully resulted in an
agreement to include a 6-dispenser Chevron fuel station to the west
of the store, with signage toned down to keep the Native American
theme as the focus. The Tribe also hopes to become one of the
first stations on the Olympic Peninsula to sell bio-diesel.
