A Day in Tenakee Springs, Part 3

17 November 2011 | Tenakee Springs, Alaska
The Snyder Mercantile Shop has been serving basics in Tenakee since 1899, when Ed Snyder rowed over from Juneau with a boat full of groceries and set up business. The building and fixtures inside date back over a century. The old heavy wood display cases offer fresh groceries and modern pharmacy items, with lingering old time wares in their original packaging displayed like a museum on the highest shelves.

The hospitality matches the charm. When another customer discovered I¬'m from New York City, she called over the young shop clerk to introduce us, who lives in New York City too when she¬'s not staying with her uncle in Tenakee. Part time in New York and part time in Alaska, sounds great to me!
