Stores in Saranac Lake
We got the stuff, we got the spirit!

Locally Owned Shops and Hand-Made Gifts

We have something for everyone in our array of shops. We celebrate local artisans, charming shops with personalized service and knowledge of the goods that comes from having the owner there to help.

We have all your needs covered, from clothing to equipment. There’s souvenirs, antiques, toys and games. Find a perfect piece of local art while browsing through Saranac Lake's many galleries and studios.

Our small town downtown has plenty of dining spots for a meal, a cup of great coffee, and a homemade snack. Stroll our scenic RiverWalk for sparkling scenery that is steps from downtown.

Main Street is also the location of the Community Store of Saranac Lake, the only community-owned and operated department store in New York State!
