Meet Penny and the Arctic Trading Company

The Arctic Trading Company is one of the biggest and well-known local gift shops in Churchill, Manitoba. This year marks the 36th year that this company has been in operation and their goods are still attracting tourists and locals alike!

Churchill has a history of being a trading post and has been a main hub of exchange in the north for hundreds of years. The tradition continues as Penny, local and owner, brings in northern art including carvings, caribou hair sculptures, and helps make the warmest slippers you’ll ever try on! The Arctic Trading Company gives visitors the opportunity to take home beautiful wearable art from Churchill!
