Ste. Agathe Flying J to Open in Early March


Construction is nearing completion on the new Pilot Flying J Travel Center along Highway 75 in Ste. Agathe. Although the location was initially expected to open in late January, delays resulted in pushing back the date by a few weeks.

“The Flying J Travel Center in Ste. Agathe is scheduled to open early March of 2018,” says Stephanie Myerr, spokeswoman for Pilot Flying J. “It will feature full amenities for area residents and the traveling public.”

In addition to the full range of services offered at other Pilot Flying J locations, the Ste. Agathe outlet will also include a Subway restaurant.

“Pilot Flying J’s continued commitment to connect people and places with comfort, care, and a smile drives our expanding network of stores,” says Myers. “[We] take into consideration customer feedback, convenience, and location when planning our network of stores to better serve our customers and guests.”

The business, located along the highway in the Riel Industrial Park, has been highly anticipated both by area residents and the trucking community.

“Ste. Agathe is perfectly located along Highway 75,” points out Shaun Crew, Chairman of the Riel Industrial Park. “[It’s] the mid-continental trade corridor between Canada and the U.S.A. and is a major trucking route for trans-border trade. Our proximity to Winnipeg makes it ideal to avoid the higher taxes and traffic congestion found in the city.”
