Allow us to introduce ourselves

We are Big Bear Trading Company.

We are proud to call ourselves Banff's Premier Shopping experience, and we'd love for you to come and see why.

Here at Big Bear Trading Company we recognize that you love to appreciate the beauty of your surroundings, and our bespoke store, opened in June 2021, is designed with that in mind.

More than just a store

Take a seat

Relax in front of the fireplace. Whether you are exhausted after a great hike, or just waiting for your shopping partner to choose their favourite new Hoody, our fireplace seating area is a great spot to take a break.

the outdoors, indoors

Like many of our design features, we want you to enjoy the nature of the national park even when you're indoors.

At every turn, features like our Antler Chandelier remind you that you are in a national park. (Don't worry, they're not real antlers, we leave them where they belong).

Curated to stand out

Our Big Bear Trading Company designs feature alongside our complete range of National Park inspired apparel and gifts.

Curated to stand out from the crowd, while fitting in to the beautiful surroundings that we call home, there's Banff National Park in everything we do.

Wow. Popped into this new shop in Banff and was blown away. Treasures everywhere and practical fun items I haven't been able to buy locally. Beautiful beeswax wrap. Fabulous washcloths and great household style gifts I always like to have on hand. Make this a stop while you shop Banff. Local love, owned and operated by a young local family who have done a great job in serving the needs and must have for residents and visitors.

This is an incredibly cute store! After shopping around in downtown Banff you quickly realize a lot of the stores sell the exact same items so shopping gets boring really fast. However, this store sells very cute products. They have awesome designs on their shirts and sweaters and they’re very soft and comfy to wear. They come in preshrunk cotton so you don’t have to worry about buying a size up either. This store is also dog friendly so feel free to bring your pups in. While browsing I encourage you to check out their fitting room. The hanging chair is so fun. They also have great mugs and dish towels, along with notebooks and other accessories.

One impressive thing to note is how the employees stock the store. Everything is meticulously folded and organized from xsmall to xlarge. You will definitely leave with something when you come here.
