The Pack River Store has been a Sandpoint Tradition since 1976. Owner-operators Alex and Brittany Jacobson purchased the store in June 2018 from Alex's mother, Arlene who owned and operated it for the previous 18 years. Alex graduated from California Culinary Academy in San Francisco in 2006. After cooking all over the East Bay for eight years, he moved back to Sandpoint to be close to family and his future wife. Brittany is a Sandpoint native who grew up in the industry. With 15 years of experience she manages the front of the house and the store's catering business. Following Arlene's tradition of home cooked comfort food, Alex uses his formal education and experience to elevate the comfort food dishes the PRS is known for. The store proudly offers house cured, smoked and roasted meats available by the pound, deli salads, pastas, ribs, jams, sauces, baked goods and desserts, take and bake dinners, an eclectic selection of beer and wine, groceries, gas, propane, and showers.
