Nice place to do some shopping if your looking for some souvenirs. We were able to buy a couple baseball hats and some really cool knit gloves and hats very reasonably. They had plenty to choose from and were very helpful

If you take a cruise to Alaska, you will see these stores everywhere. They're a little pricey, but they have pretty much anything you might want to take home. Enjoy.

Thank you for the review. We do try our best to be priced as well as we can, often times beating other stores. We are only located in Ketchikan, but have several stores for people to shop at. Thank you so much for stopping in!
