Gliding Eagle Market
The mission of the Gliding Eagle Market is to serve the Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe and the local communities by providing competitive prices and displaying world class customer service at a convenient location. We strive to support the Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe with tax revenue, employment opportunities, and ultimately profits from efficient operations.
Gliding Eagle Market (GEM) is wholly owned by the Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe. Management and oversight responsibilities fall under the Noo-Kayet Development Corporation – the Federally recognized Section 17 Corporation owned by the Tribe.
Gliding Eagle Market originally opened in 1973 in a small building affectionately referred to as “The Smoke Shop”. A new building was constructed in 2003, when the store was rebranded as the Gliding Eagle Market. In 2010, a new fuel pump island was added which increased the amount of fuel dispensers to six.
