Since 1984, Alaska Business Monthly has documented, analyzed, and promoted the mercantile health of the 49th state, from Alaska's multimillion-dollar industries to its single proprietors and small businesses. Experienced journalist, publisher, and business-magazine manager Jim Martin leads a team of intrepid reporters and writers, talented artists, and a discerning editorial staff, all with strong roots in the region and a deep interest in the inner workings of the state's monetary engine. Like John Maynard Keynes' surprise guest appearance on Deadliest Catch, each article and editorial places a thoughtful economic focus on some of Alaska's most important industries, from construction-employment reports to oil and gas developments to tourism news. Far from mere number-crunching and pie charts, the pages of Alaska Business Monthly also celebrate the real-life humans that make up the companies and mom-and-pops throughout the state, with special reporting on the importance of Alaskan Natives in some of the region's top businesses, and profiles that reveal the interesting stories behind a neighborhood burger joint or a thriving tech outfit.

The inspiration for Mabel McKinley came from the owners' grandmother, whose creative spirit overflowed into handmade Christmas cards, an illustrated cookbook, and beautiful trinkets curated at her own flea market. Mabel McKinley's vintage, handmade, and repurposed goods honor her with their eclectic beauty. Flattering dresses from Shabby Apple and Kiyonna wrap physiques in classic style, and candles, artwork, and home décor make houses feel like homes rather than oversize cereal boxes. The shop assembles a collection of unique pieces from all over the world, as well as Alaskan-made goodies such as art by Brianna Reagan.

Owner Amber Fullmer doesn’t just enjoy cooking; she loves how it brings her family together. That thread also saw her through a big life shift—leaving a government job to open Amber's Olive Company—which now affords her more time with her family. Today, she stocks her shop with a wide array of premium oils infused with flavors such as persian lime, spicy cayenne, and tarragon. These oils can be paired with traditional or flavored balsamic vinegars to add dimension to salads, pastas, or water-balloon fights. The store also stocks specialty food items made with high-quality ingredients, such as infused salts, chocolates, and gift baskets.

Scallops from Kachemak Bay. Hand-trimmed halibut from the Gulf of Alaska. Razor clams hand-dug from the beaches below Mount Redoubt. This sustainably caught seafood—along with Alaskan king crab, smoked salmon, and cod—forms the backbone of Tanner’s Fresh Fish Processing. Founders Jason and Rory Tanner process seafood fresh from the docks, vacuum-packing and flash-freezing and glazing it to prevent freezer burn before shipping it anywhere in Alaska, free of charge. Their team just as deftly custom-processes fish caught for sport, making using fillet knifes at home seem as ridiculous as drying off from a shower with the dog.

Alaska Center for the Performing Arts augments the cultural landscape of Anchorage with a schedule of entertaining events throughout the year. The non-profit organization welcomes audiences to take in musicals, concerts, ballets, and comedy shows in four stunning venues. The spacious Atwood Concert Hall features a dramatic starburst ceiling that mimics the aurora borealis, while the smaller Discovery Theatre sports saucer-shaped discs to aid in acoustics.

It's no secret what Basket Case Gift Baskets Flowers & Balloons' staff specializes in: the business name says it all. They piece together brightly colored floral arrangements for birthdays, anniversaries, thank-yous, new babies, and weddings. To these bouquets, they add complementary balloons, stuffed animals, and sweets. They also fill custom gift baskets. What their business name doesn't show, though, is their dedication to the quick and artful completion of each order.
