Default Shopping in Alaska

I would like to go shopping at some of the ports like Juneau. Are there any major stores you could tell me about. I also like to shop for clothes and t-shirts.

Mostly independent small stores in the ports but certainally a great variety, just walk off the ship- you will be heading right for a "boatload" of stores.

There is gulp a walmart in Ketchican and they have a free shuttle from the pier or the local bus can take you there.

Juneau has a mall and a K-Mart

Be sure to pick up the local guide books as they have coupons for sale items and our favoite place is in Skagway where at the edge of town there is a discount gift shop. We bought calendars for a dollar, sweat shirts for $ 10 and other stuff.

At each port there is the usual tourist trap shops.

Hi Bubblehead, Thank you for the info. on K-mart and Walmart. I love those stores.

Hi Winyan. I will meet you all at the Champagne whozit at 3 p.m. I notice there are some singles that I can hang out with. We are going to have a lot of fun. At 4p.m.
they have the Tea buffet of sandwiches and sweets. At 4.pm. to 6p.m. they may have
pizza. I have been on the Mercury before. Maybe I can arrange to sit at dinner-time with some of you cruise-critics. I am traveling with a lady who needed a roomie. I am free to do whatever I want. I will talk to you later. Lucy Ramirez
