Shopping (Kevin Arnold photo)
Shopping trips in Northern BC provide visitors with not only the standard supermarkets and malls, but also historic landmark stores and artisan galleries selling one-of-a-kind pieces.
Discover how the Cow Bay boutiques earned their name in Prince Rupert, or go for a European alpine experience in Smithers. On Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Islands), browse Haida artwork like carved jewelry, masks and sculptures made of gold, silver and cedar wood. In Jade City on the Stewart-Cassiar Highway 37, discover goods made of the green gemstone that is indeed mined in Northern BC.
Visit the modern version of the Hudson's Bay Company store in Prince George and for quality mall shopping, drop into Fort St. John.
