Shopping and Attractions
DOWNTOWN, SPECIALTY AND BIG BOX ALL IN THE MIX
Bemidji retailers offer all of life’s necessities, from auto parts to health and beauty, but they’re also hip, earthy, upscale and entertaining.
When it comes to shopping, Bemidji has the bases covered and then some. Three supermarkets and a coop grocery, two major discount retailers, a mall with two department store anchors, several large home improvement stores, new and used car dealers — you’ll find all that and more on several commercial corridors.
Downtown Bemidji is a destination all its own, offering essentials such as hardware and books and an intriguing assortment of boutiques, gift shops and services. It’s a great place to while away an hour or two, with plenty of places to duck in for a cup of coffee, a snack or an adult beverage.
There’s always something new to discover.
REGION IS INTERSECTION OF CLASSIC AND CHIC

It all begins with the magic of the north woods: sparkling waters, deep forests, fall colors and starry skies. These enduring charms continue to draw families and sportsmen for unforgettable vacations.
With major highways in every direction, major bike trails, twice-daily air service and an abundance of quality lodging at hotels and resorts, Bemidji remains a destination that many people return to year after year.
Increasingly, a busy schedule of shows and conventions at the city’s events center, combined with the thriving arts scene, outstanding restaurants and eclectic shopping options, have added a new cosmopolitan dimension to its appeal.
There literally is something for everybody in Bemidji, no matter the month.
