Q. Is hawking legal in Juneau? The store called ******* causes so much inconvience to the tourists & the stores next door, by hawking & calling tourists walking on the sidewalk inside the store to sell them ******. It causes harassment to the tourists & its neighbors & give a bad name for Juneau as a shopping place.
Dear Juneau Resident,
There are limits on how hawking can be done and JPD has gotten multiple complaints about different businesses this year. A number of citations have been issued for hawking. You should call in the specifics of the situation when it is happening and a community service, downtown, or patrol officer can check it out.
