Richfield's close neighbor, Bloomington, is now home to Minnesota's first Duluth Trading Co. retail location.
The new store will officially open on Thursday, Oct. 10, just over I-494 at 9801 Lyndale Ave. S.
According to the Star Tribune, the company, a major Internet and catalog retailer that specializes in men's and women's workwear, launched in Duluth in 1989, but has never had a retail location in Minnesota: "It will be the company’s largest store in size and its first to sell the complete line of men’s and women’s merchandise displayed in the catalog and online, said Duluth Trading’s president, Stephanie Pugliese. 'It’s about bringing the brand experience to life,' she said."
Duluth Trading Co. also has smaller stores in three Wisconsin towns: Mount Horeb, Port Washington and an outlet in Belleville, the Star Tribune reported. This will be the first full-price store to stock clearance merchandise. The Bloomington location's hours are 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays. The store's phone number is 952-884-3561. Are you a fan of Duluth Trading Co.? Tell us in the comments section.
