When Rankin Inlet’s Inuujaq Leslie Fredlund decided she was going to open her store selling Indigenous-made products at the beginning of 2020, she knew there would be challenges ahead.

But not even she could have expected a global pandemic that would bring the local economy to a grinding halt.

It was the summer of 2019 when I got a business licence and started planning. I was working so it was hard to get working full time. In January I said it’s time to dive and, take a chance and if it doesn’t work out take it from there,” said Fredlund, owner of pop-up shop Maybe Somewhere.
