Northwest Territories Shopping and nightlife

Shopping in Northwest Territories

There are over 40 cooperatives in the Northwest Territories specialising in handicrafts, furs, fisheries, print shops and retailing. First Nations handicrafts and footwear are made locally for sale. The often higher cost of goods (an increase of up to 20% on the rest of Canada) is due to the supply and distribution charges caused by the large distances involved.
