The Beauval Forks location is an important gathering place and service provider for English River First Nation. Located near Lac Île-à-la-Crosse, in Northern Saskatchewan, this retail enterprise opened in 2008 and was the first in the region to provide a restaurant, bakery, butcher, full grocery selection and ATM. Prior to its construction, the nearest location with this range of services was Meadow Lake, nearly two hours from Beauval and three and a half hours from Patuanak. Today, it continues to provide accessible groceries and supplies for local residents.
This enterprise is one of the largest employers for the communities of Beauval and Patuanak. The Gas Bar is open seven days a week and offers unleaded and diesel fuel service.
