The Kennecott Trading Company is a local gift store that specializes in locally made jewelry, crafts, cards, clothing, and other gifts. We source high-quality souvenirs from around the state to make sure you can find an authentic pice of Alaska to bring back home with you.
In addition to gifts and souvenirs, we offer a selection of essentials you might find yourself needing in the heart of Alaska's largest wilderness. We carry some basic outdoor gear and clothing, such as rain jackets and pants, hats and gloves, water bottles, and sunscreen. We also have essentials like batteries and basic toiletries so you don't find yourself without them! Packaged snacks and drinks are also available along with artisan foods showcasing Alaska's unique ingredients.
We carry books on local history, novels by local writers, and guidebooks to flora and fauna, as well as park maps and information. We also have a reading nook where you can thumb through the store copy and enjoy the view of the Kennicott Glacier through our panoramic picture windows.

We are proud to offer the only espresso in the town of Kennecott - quite the luxury in our off-the-grid community! Brewed with (filtered) water right out of National Creek and the energy from our solar panels, we bring you an authentic Alaskan brew!
Enjoy a delicious cup of freshly brewed coffee or freshly pressed espresso on our back deck with gorgeous views of the Kennicott Glacier! We feature Alaskan coffee roasters and offer a variety of quality syrups, chocolates and dairy and non-dairy milk options for a selection of specialty drinks and the ability to customize your order.
Want something more refreshing? We are excited to bring you the perfect cold and iced beverage on a hot day.
