UPDATE: Prince Rupert Husky closing down, future of site uncertain

A business in downtown Prince Rupert business will be closing its doors later this month.

Prince Rupert’s Husky gas station will be closing down later this month.

Mel Duvall, media and issues manager for Husky Energy, confirmed that the Prince Rupert Husky Station will be closing on April 30 and cited economics as the primary reason in the decision. The station, located at 201 2nd Avenue West, is one of three gas stations located in the first four blocks of Second Avenue West.

However, the closure doesn’t mean that the gas station itself will shut down. According to Duvall, the site is leased by Husky and the company is returning the lease to the landowner. The landowner, in turn, can seek another energy company to operate a station on the site should they choose to do so.
