Mission Market, at the intersection of Mission Road and Highway 331, opened February 6, 2003. The market is owned and operated by the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation as a community service.
Deli The deli has submarine sandwiches made to order, u-bake or we-bake pizzas, a grade-A espresso machine, and hand-dipped ice cream. We will also have the usual pre-made sandwiches, sausages, hot dogs and fresh doughnuts. Order at our drive thru window!
Produce and Fresh meats We have incorporated a produce case with fresh fruits and vegetables with a good, fresh selection. A case full of deli meats is also available for custom slicing and purchase by the pound. We are offering fine quality meats including meats from Hill Meats of Pendleton.
Grocery The store will be limited, but still will have a much broader selection than the prior Mission Market. The necessities of life plus some specialty items will be available for the local reservation shoppers and those traveling on Highway 331 between Highway 11 and I-84 through Mission. Many truckers and travelers use this route daily.
Gathering Areas We have built generous seating into the inside and outside of the store. There are tables and booths inside for deli customers and a large patio area with large benches and picnic tables. We are excited that the reservation residents and Tribal employees will be able to sit down with their lunches in a convenient area or go in for their morning coffee, newspaper, and doughnut.
Post Office Boxes We have obtained permission from the U.S. Postal Service to be a Certified Mail Receiving Agency which allows us to have a bank of boxes for rent to anyone who wants to receive their mail at our facility.
Public Art Over 150 Tribal members, youth, and community residents have painted tiles for the market with the help of Dottys Ceramics of Pendleton. Dotty has donated her time in bringing out a huge selection of her paints and helping the participants with painting their tiles. She has also donated her time to glaze the tiles and fire them for this project. These tiles are being framed and hung throughout the store.
In June 2001, the project was awarded $400,000 through the Department of Housing and Urban Development's Rural Housing and Economic Development program for innovative community projects. This award will fund approximately 50% of the cost of the project. The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Rural Business Co-operative Services awarded $150,000 to assist in the purchase of grocery store equipment in November 2002. These awards were based on the Market's innovative operating model. Projections from the business plan are based on historical sales figures and show that break-even profitability is achievable if the Market can operate without capital debt.
