As most of our customers know Patty Dicker purchased the Bigland General Stores in Makkovik & Hopedale during the Winter of 2017, then Bigland Nain in the Fall of 2017. Patty decided at the time to keep the name “Bigland” for a while but knew she wanted to change it eventually. She brainstormed many possible names but only “one” came out on top.
Patty credits her father Frank Dicker for instilling hard work ethic, determination, and strong will into her everyday and business life. Frank has played a huge role in getting Patty to where she is today, and naming the stores after him is Patty’s way of honoring her Dad.
We would like to officially welcome you to Franks General Store. We proudly serve the people of Makkovik, Hopedale and Nain with great honor and pride. Thank you for supporting local Inuit owned business.
