Montana Gift Corral - About Us


Montana Gift Corral was born in 1993, when Sharon Hopeman came home empty-handed after shopping for Montana souvenirs for her family back in Virginia. Over dinner in the Bozeman Hotel, she convinced her husband Bert, an experienced alpinist and aspiring shop-owner, to open not the climbing shop he had in mind, but a store with a wide range of Montana gifts. That year, the couple launched Montana Gift Corral in downtown Bozeman to unexpected success, selling out of key stock on the opening weekend.
Since then, Montana Gift Corral has continued a tradition of serving Montana-loving travelers and locals alike from its Main Street location, growing to include conveniently-located stores in Wal-Mart, the Gallatin Valley Mall, the Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport, Lewis and Clark Caverns, and of course, this website.
Our stores owe their steady success to our hardworking local employees; our treasured local artisans, state vendors and worldwide suppliers; and of course, our loyal customers. Thank you for supporting us for three decades.
