Gordon E. Sandvik, Provoan since 1950 but formerly of Bellingham, Wash., established the store in a new modernistic building planned by Willard Nelson Associates, architects. The exterior is mainly of brick, with mahogany dominating the interior finish. Mr. Sandvik comes from a family of fish dealers, his father having been in the business for 45 years. He still holds the position of tug boat captain for the Alaska Packers Association during summer months, operating out of Naknek, Alaska. Alaska Packers Assn. is the salmon division of Califorina Packing Gorp. Mr. Sandvik and his wife, Mildred P. Sandvik, decided to locate here because they liked the community when they drove through it a dozen years ago. "I always felt Prove should have a fish foods center and' finally decided to open one myself," Mr. Sandvik said. An authentic sailing ship anchor off an early-day sailing ship of California Packing Corp. attracts attention in front of the new store. Mr. Sandvik brought it from Alaska where it had been for about 50 years. Mr. Sandvik flys fresh sea foods, in season, from Bellingham and Seattle, Wash, and Astoria, Ore., using commercial airlines. Included are fresh crabs and various fish such as red- snapper, sole, flounder and cod. Specialty fish products are imported from such faraway points as Norway, Scotland, Denmark, and Holland.
