Shopping

Local

Discover rare, scenic beauty and warm, friendly people just a few minutes away in Cranbrook. With a population of 20,000, it is the service and shopping hub for the surrounding communities. You’ll find hotels, restaurants and chains like Home Depot, Safeway, Wal-Mart and Canadian Tire along Cranbrook's main strip, but its small town charm comes alive with local boutiques, shops and cafes.

International

Accessing premiere shopping is easy here, as it’s only an hour’s drive south to the US border. Another hour and twenty will put you in Whitefish, Montana, or a two and a half hour drive to Kalispell where you can catch a flight to Las Vegas for less than a $100.

Entertainment

For cozy nights in, our community is one of the few in the area with Fibre Optic Internet – a connection faster than high speed Internet – to stream movies or music without interruption.

For nights out, Cranbrook has two live performance theatres: The Key City Theatre and The Stage Door. It also has a five-plex cinema, featuring current movies. The City has three indoor arenas, including the Western Financial Place, which is home the Western Hockey League's Kootenay Ice and many live performances. 

For more excitement, just 5 minutes away is the St. Eugene Mission – Casino of the Rockies, featuring 15,000 square feet of gaming space, 225 gaming machines, 10 table games as well as 4 restaurants and a 125-room hotel.
