SHOPPING

If you’d like to take a little bit of Yellowknife home with you, there’s lots to choose from.  Maybe you’d like a diamond, mined, cut and polished in the NWT?  Or you could purchase a glass or mug, with an artistic northern icon etched into it or an authentic pair of beaded moosehide mocassins.   Of course we also have a wide range of Yellowknife branded clothing and dozens of other souvenir items to remind you of your stay in our city.

Looking for necessities?  There are food, clothing, sports equipment, electronics and telecommunications stores in the city as well as a few large chain stores.
