Tsiigehtchic's "home store"
Tsiigehtchic is a small hamlet of about 150 people. The only store there is "Num-Nums," which is a dry-goods store run out of someone's living room. The only sign is a computer-printed piece of paper on the door.
Since the closest grocery store is about an hour away, in Fort McPherson -- and since Tsiigehtchic is isolated for about 4-6 weeks twice a year, as the ice road freezes or melts --- it's really an invaluable service.
You can even rent videos!
