BEAR PAW LODGE, WILLISTON, ND — Imagine finishing a 12-hour shift at the well site and pulling into a convenience store for some shaving supplies -- only to find it’s already closed for the night. Or stopping in pre-shift to pick up a new set of boot laces to replace your worn-out ones, only to find there’s an hour-long wait at the register.
This sort of inconvenience was a daily reality for our crews in North Dakota’s Bakken region. Our solution? An on-site commissary to accommodate our guests whose schedules are at odds with regular retail hours at local stores. The convenience store was so popular that we added it to many of our other lodges as well.
Long days on the work sites are hard enough—at Target Logistics we’re always looking for ways to make every guest’s experience a little bit easier.
