Fodor's Review

The largest store in town mainly sells groceries, but it also stocks Eskimo crafts made by locals, including furs, parkas, mukluks, and ceremonial masks. AC Stores have transformed supply chain logistics and life in Bush Alaska. For many people, they are a lifeline to the most basic food and clothing supplies that make the extreme reaches of Alaska habitable. If you have time to visit one, you should do so, if for no other reason than to see firsthand the price of milk and bread in the Polar North.
