Located in downtown Chisholm, Casey Drug is the perfect one-stop-shop for picking up a prescription at the pharmacy, grabbing some hardware in the basement, and finding a lovely, thoughtful gift. Casey Drug has the perfect items to show off your regional pride: custom painted signs featuring town names from across the range, vinyl stickers of northwoods attractions, and jewelry from Cecelia Designs—a Minnesota company that plants one tree for every purchase.
Take a stroll through this lovely Virginia art gallery and admire the rotating exhibits on show. Can’t get enough of the local art? Take a piece of art home with you!

This Hibbing gift shop is filled to the brim with something for everyone on your list. If you can’t find the perfect gift here, it probably doesn’t exist!

Tucked inside Thunderbird Mall, Pebble Spa has more to offer than just massages.
