Step back in time at Anchorage’s oldest gift emporium, The Kobuk. Family owned and operated since 1915 and housed in the historic Kimball Building, The Kobuk offers an array of gifts and candies from around the world. This Anchorage landmark served as the general store for pioneer Alaskans, providing “essentials” to the people of Anchorage and beyond. The building survived the 1964 earthquake that rocked downtown and over the years paint and building materials, sewing notions and fabrics, fine china and candy have been sold. The Bonito family purchased The Kobuk in 1993 and the Kimball Building in 2002 and now feature coffees and teas, gifts and jewelry from around the world, and a host of beautiful Alaska made items. The old living quarters houses the Kobuk Cafe, bakery and espresso bar. Stop in, sample our famous house tea and give a nod to Decema Kimball Andresen who refused to sell this historic property when the city developed Town Square Park on the doorstep of her family home and business!
