Duluth Trading Co. to open first retail store in Minnesota


Construction crews in Bloomington are building Duluth Trading Company's first retail store in Minnesota with a completion date set for this fall, according to the Star Tribune.

Duluth Trading, a workwear clothing company, was originally founded by two brothers in Duluth in 1989 and sold in 1996.

According to the Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal, the new store will be 14,000 square feet and located in the former Burger Brothers Sporting Goods Store at 9801 S. Lyndale Ave.

The Business Journal also reports that the Minnesota store will be the largest of Duluth Trading's three current retail outlets, all of which are located in Wisconsin.

Stephanie Pugliese, president of the Belleville, Wis., based company, told the Star Tribune that they picked the Twin Cities because of its large fan base of approximately 50,000 customers.

Duluth Trading predominantly sells its work clothes, including its Fire Hose Work Pants and Longtail T-Shirts, online and through catalogs.
