Northwestern Ontario offers unique shopping experiences. Exclusive gift shops, art & crafts stores and specialty boutiques can be found in even our smallest regional towns. You might want to stop by the Township of Nipigon and pick up a pair of the famously trademarked, Nipigon Nylons - long grey winter socks with a red stripe. You can also dig for your own amethyst gemstones at the Amethyst Mine Panorama & Gift Centre.

For larger purchases, there is no better place to shop in Northwestern Ontario than in Thunder Bay. With its eclectic mix of high street stores, designer boutiques and local markets, Thunder Bay will satisfy the tastes of any shopper. 

Wander the areas of Thunder Bay's Bay & Algoma neighbourhood, Westfort Village Business District or Waterfront District to find hand-made treasures by local artisans and crafters. Go to the Intercity area to discover indoor malls and large retailers. Thunder Bay also offers homegrown produce from around the Northwest region at its weekly Country Market and Farmer’s Markets. The award-winning Thunder Oak Cheese Farm is the only farm in Ontario to produce Gouda cheese.
