Shopping (Kevin Arnold photo)
Of all the Northern BC communities, Prince George has the best shopping selection and has stores ranging from small, local businesses to bigger chains.
The city is a good spot to stop and load up on supplies if driving further north or heading down south.
A variety of locally owned stores are found in downtown Prince George, especially along 3rd and 4th Avenue, also known as "Specialty Avenue." Within just a few blocks, there are art stores, consignment stores, pawnshops, second hand stores, boutiques, kitchen and bath shops, import furniture, hardware and more.
Northern Hardware, a localized branch of Home Hardware, carries just about anything a person could need. It has been a keystone in Prince George for many years, and has the look and feel of a place that collects things.
