Igloo is a self-sufficient little community, with more services than are to be found in many a town of larger size. It has the largest store in this corner of the state, officially called the Trading Post, but popularly known as the "PX". This store has three departments, a drug, clothing and grocery respectively, with a large and well patronized stock of goods. The concessionaires who own the store also operate several other services such as the Post Restaurant, a clothes pressing and cleaning shop, a shoe repair shop, barber shop and beauty parlor, and a filling station. There is also an extremely well patronized bowling alley, and a theater with four changes of programs weekly. The latter has recently been taken over by the military authorities and is operated as an Army theater.
