Very Large store. Takes up 2 floors. Lots of souvenirs, and clothing. Most of the items were on sale as it was only a few weeks before cruises stopped going into Ketchikan for the season.

Nice store, friendly staff, and large selection of gear and souvenirs. Great store for end of cruise season deals on merchandise. Got some nice hats and stuff for the kids. Worth a stop.

There are many locations of Tongass Trading Company and it seems they all had similar or the same items. You will certainly get a souvenir here.

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
