Did you know Nelson has more restaurants per capita than San Francisco!?
Funky, independent, eclectic: this is how folks from Nelson describe themselves. The stores are no different. A stroll around the downtown offers a truly local shopping experience. Nelson is recognized as the shopping capital of the Kootenays, boasting a vibrant heritage downtown with a tremendous number of unique retail shops, restaurants, and coffee houses. Historic Baker Street is truly an adventure. In addition to the downtown core, Chahko Mika Mall boasts several national stores for anchor tenants rounding out Nelson’s shopping opportunities.
