The spirit of Alaska isn't just in our store. It's in our DNA. Forged by independence. Furthered by hard work.

But one thing remains the same: our commitment to our customers and our community. Today, Hames Corporation is a fourth-generation family-owned and operated company, and we are much more than the region's number one grocer. We're a gathering place for doughnuts and coffee.

We invest in our employees and empower them to do whatever it takes to delight our customers. At Hames Corporation, we're a family.
