    Arctic Trading Post Gift Emporium: From Fine Gifts to Cheap Treasures

    Arctic Trading Post Gift Emporium

    There are a handful of shops along Nome's Front Street which cater to tourists. This is one in which I especially enjoyed browsing. They offer a fine array of local craft items and souviners from jade jewelry to sweat shirts and post cards. Also there was a very good selection of books about Nome and Northwestern Alaska.

    What to pay: Expect prices to be somewhat higher here than in more accessible cities like Anchorage or Fairbanks, but still not outrageous.

    Hanson Trading Company

    Whether you need fresh produce, hardware, or anything in between, chances are you can find it here. I enjoyed exploring this old-fashioned general store. Thank God Wal-Mart hasn't found it's way to Nome - yet.

    What to buy: Groceries, clothing, electronics -you name it. Not such a great selection but a little bit of everything.

  • Hanson's and AC: Groceries

    by eSKImo75 Updated Aug 28, 2003

    There are 2 main grocery stories in Nome (not counting the convenience/liquor store on Front Street).

    Hanson's is within walking distance of anything in town. On Bering Street, next to the square by Old St. Joseph Church. Expect exquisite items (scrumptuous Sacher Torte with Belgian chocolate and raspberry ganache, Hagen Daaz, gourmet pizza).

    AC's (Alaska Commercial) has everything under the sun. Fantastic variety, fresh produce, fully stocked shelves. You need a vehicle to get there and back. It's on the Nome-Teller Highway (Bering Street), 5 min from town.

    What to pay: Expect to pay a lot. Groceries are expensive, as is most everything in Nome.
