If you have time you need to visit the Sportsman's Warehouse in Soldotna, it is huge and has some great stuff. I bought some rainware that was on sale that was really cheap. There is also a killer bakery in town "The Moose is Loose"..
Not sure about that that, BUT we took a bunch of extra stuff and instead of bringing it home as excess baggage, we shipped it home via UPS. We took frozen fish home as our #50 per person allotment for checked in baggage on Alaska Air.
