For some, vacation purchases are meant to sit on a shelf. Not here. Our visitors like to shop locally for things they can use, as in use immediately. Outdoor outfitters will have you on the trail in seconds flat. If you’re into snowmobiling, we have options. There’s a general store to fuel up, a drug store for essentials, and a sprinkling of other shops. Plus we can’t forget the cheese stores.
