No appointment is necessary and The Little Clinic is open seven days a week, including evenings.

The Union store will also open an additional fuel station for the community with the existing fuel center staying open for business. There will also be a new separate liquor store, which will offer beer and winetastings.

The Grand Opening Celebration is packed with special events.
