Maverik opens store in Baker City

A 24-hour Maverik gas station and convenience store opened Nov. 2  at 1520 Campbell St.

The Baker City store is the company’s first Oregon location.

Among items the company highlights: their own Bodacious Bean Mountain Coffee line and the Bonfire line of fresh-baked pastries, breakfast sandwiches and deli items.

“That’s what makes us different,” said Ernie Harker, Maverik’s executive director of marketing. “It allows us a lot of control over quality.”

They also offer a sandwich with Bahama Mama sausages.

Outside the 4,300 square foot minimarket will be eight fuel-pumping stations with 16 hoses. Propane also will be for sale.

Along with food, beverages and other goods available in minimarket will be such items as oil, air filters, fuel additives, jumper cables and other auto-related items.

Harker said their fuel prices are competitive and that the prices go down a little more with membership cards, which are free.

This is the first Maverik in Oregon though there are locations in western Idaho, including Weiser, Payette and Fruitland, as well as in Washington.

The Baker City location will employ fewer than a dozen employees, Harker said. Three or four workers are expected to be on duty routinely.

“We’re very excited that Maverik has finally reached Oregon,” said Brad Call, Maverik’s vice president. “We couldn’t have picked a better place in Oregon to bring ‘Adventure’s First Stop’ than Baker City.”

Utah-based Maverik operates about 220 stores across the west and is privately owned. None of the locations are franchises.
