The location will be the first retail tenant to open within the building which is nearing its completion and expects to welcome its first residents home this fall. Two other retail spaces have been spoken for in the development, a Papa Murphy's location will open in one (the fourth location in Duluth) and a local optometrist will open an office in another.
There still are a few remaining retail spaces within the complex that the developer hopes to fill with tenants that will benefit the building's residents and also the surrounding community.
While this is the first co-branded location for Caribou and Einstein it is not the first, nor is it the last location for the companies within the Twin Ports. Caribou Coffee currently operates four locations within Duluth while Einstein Bros has one location at the College of St. Scholastica. Another co-branded Caribou and Einstein Bros location will open in the coming months on the ground floor of the new Kenwood Village development.
The new location will be open Monday through Friday from 5am-9pm, Saturdays from 6am-9pm, and Sundays from 6am-8pm.
