A return to our roots
Our newest store – right where it all began
That’s right, our newest Duluth Trading Company store is something very special – a return to our roots and the place that spawned the hardest working workwear brand in America.
Three decades ago, two brothers from Duluth proclaimed “There’s got to be a better way!” What started as the Bucket Boss® tool carrier soon became an entire line of ingenious job site solutions – all sold through a rambunctious little catalog that practically screamed to be opened from the moment it hit the mailbox. Turning the pages revealed one more surprise: the photos weren’t photos at all, but illustrations by another colorful Duluth character, Rick Kollath. Yes, this company did things differently. And that’s the way customers liked it.
It's been a few years since the company was headquartered on an old dredge barge down on the harbor, but while we’ve done some traveling around, we've also paid homage to our roots in countless catalog covers and developed products inspired by the hard work and tough winters that have made Duluth famous (or notorious, as the case may be).
So we're back and ready to get down to business with a new store downtown at 300 E. Superior Street. The old Woodrush Building, built back in 1915, is a local landmark and boasts 8,000 feet of space to bring our entire collection of innovative and problem-solving men's and women's workwear, plus all the ingenious tools, gadgets, organizers, apothecary and useful specialty gear you need to get the job done.
So sail down from the locks at Sault Ste Marie or head into town by road. See, touch and try on Fire Hose® Work Pants, Longtail T® Shirts and everything else in our store. Then load up and get the job done in comfort!
