    Fred Meyer: One stop shopping

    by herzog63 Written Jul 23, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fred Meyer on the Left

    Fred Meyer has just about everything you'll need if you're in the Soldotna area. Food, Fishing supplies, ice , Clothing and Snacks!! Everything is reasonably priced too. It was located within walking distance of the Church we stayed in so the kids loved to go there and wander around and spend their money!! hahaha I don't know how many squirt guns they bought.

    Alaska Horn & Antler: Local Carvings

    Alaska Horn & Antler

    You can watch the artists Tom and Linda carve designs into Ram Horn, Moose Horn, Walrus Ivory, Alaskan Rocks. They do wonderful work but the items are not cheap!! So if you have the extra money you will be very proud to own a piece that they have made.

    Hanson's Custom Carving: Chainsaw artist

    Scott and Hadji riding the Great Salmon!!

    Hanson's Custom Carving is a great place to go even if you don't want to shop as he has lot's of carvings that you can pose with. There is also a Merry Go-Round with carved animals on it. $1.00 per ride.When we were there the Merry Go-Round wasn't running as it was very late in the evening....close to 11 PM. The carvings are made with a Chainsaw. His work is amazing considering that it's done with a chainsaw!!
    There is a gift shop that displays the smaller items and the the bigger displays are outside. He can do custom orders. My new VT Passport photo me getting a Bear Hug was taken here. And VTer Kaloz's VT passport photo of the big Alaskan Chair was also taken here several months ago.

    What to buy: All sorts of carved Alaskan Animals in all sizes.

    Soldotna Mall

    The Soldotna Mall is a small mall right in the center of the main strip. There are a few small shops and it also has the China Sea Restaurant. A better mall is the Peninsula Mall which is almost right across the street. There you'll find a big Safeway for groceries and a lot more stores.

    Several: Shipping Fish Home

    by herzog63 Written Jul 24, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fish packing and shipping

    If you've come to Soldotna for fishing then there is a good possibility that you'll want to ship your fish home. Sadly shipping your own fish home from Alaska will cost you more than just going to your local fish market and buying the same fish!! But if you still want to ship the fish home there are several places in Soldotna willing to take your money and provide you a great service so you can Barbeque your catch back home and tell stories about the bigger fish that got away.......

  • Soldotna Mall: Nice little mall

    by rvtravleot Written May 24, 2010

    The Soldotna Blazy Mall.
    Food and shopping.
    There was a little Victorian/country store had a lot of Alaskan gifts and a lot of other Victorian/country things. Most of the gifts here were not Alaskan made but nicer then Fred Meyers and some other stores that have the made in china gifts.
    There was also a Art and gifts store in the same mall they custom framed ( some really great framing if only I had won the lottery). They had carvings (Alaskan) Art original, prints, poster (most were Alaskan artists). Alaskan made Pottery and a lot of fun gifts that were not to expensive. Most of there gifts were Alaskan made or by Alaskan artists. We all had a fun time in the 2 main shops I would recommend stopping by anytime. We went on a rainy day with another couple and had some lunch at a little coffee shop. Then went shopping, our husbands hung out at the art shop mostly. My friend and I went everywhere. I preferred this mall to the other. The other mall had mainly clothes, shoes, Safeway (grocery) army recruiter, barber etc..
