About Us

Dear Guest,

Welcome to Alaska and Trapper Jack’s Trading Post! I opened Trappers in 1986 in the spirit of Alaska trapper Jack Newman. As a lifelong Alaskan, it’s been my pleasure to provide guests with unique mementos of their Alaska experience and the best value in town for more than 30 years. 

Visit us in Downtown Anchorage at the corner of Fourth Avenue and G Street, just one block west of the Log Cabin Visitor Information Center. You can expect a warm welcome, excellent customer service and 7,000 square feet of the best of Alaska gifts. From smoked salmon, ulu knives and souvenir clothing to soapstone carvings, pottery and fossilized ivory jewelry and Alaska Native crafts, Trapper Jack’s offers selection, quality and value. 

If you don’t find what you’re looking for on our website, give us a call! With so many different gifts, not all of them make it online, but we know we can find you the perfect Alaskan keepsake.

I hope to meet you soon!

Bill Dankworth
