"We encourage you to visit often and take advantage of the high-quality products, excellent customer service and most importantly inexpensive gas prices."
"A strong tribal economy will allow us to continue to make great strides in the many areas of government operations that provide essential government services for our tribal members, secure employment and great benefits to over 2,500 team members and their families and also supports dedicated efforts to the greater San Diego common good," said Cody J. Martinez, chairman of the Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation. "Every gallon of gas, every candy bar and every bottle of water sold will contribute to the funding of quality healthcare, decent roads and infrastructure and educational programs for future generations of the Sycuan Nation."
Furthermore, the Sycuan Market is the first phase of three phases for the Sycuan Square property. In future phases, STDC has plans to relocate the current Sycuan Medical and Dental Center to Sycuan Square and build additional mixed-use and retail space including a car wash.
