Rumors confirmed. HomeGoods is opening in Duluth. 

HomeGoods will open a new 23,458 square foot store at 5115 Burning Tree Road in a retail space that was formerly home to Dunham Sports (and just one space away crom TJMaxx. The new store is expected to begin construction this fall with an opening anticipated before the end of the year. 

Duluthians have had a HomeGoods store on their wish list for quite some time and a few months ago rumors began swirling that the retailer was coming to Duluth.

The company is owned by TJMaxx and operates on the same business model of selling amazing finds at incredible savings.” The difference between the two retailers is that instead of selling clothing like TJMaxx HomeGoods focuses on household furniture, décor and other household items. 

HomeGoods currently has 14 Minnesota locations with 12 located in the Twin Cities along with one location in St. Cloud and Rochester.

 

SCRUBS DIRECT OPENS DULUTH LOCATION

Duluth. It's a place with great restaurants, great views, and... great medical facilities

Thousands of Twin Ports residents are employed by the areas hospitals, clinics and other medical facilities. Even with all those professionals in the medical industry there are relatively few places for those employees to purchase their most essential piece of work attire; their scrubs.

Well, today is a new day and things are about to get a little easier. 

Scrubs Direct will officially open their doors to their newest location at the Burning Tree Plaza in Duluth at 10am this morning. The Duluth location will be the second for the company which also has a location in Maplewood Mall in St. Paul.

What Scrubs Direct prides themselves on is high quality and personal service. At their stores you'll find the latest in scrub uniforms, medical accessories, and professional shoes. Customers can find the newest styles including Cherokee, Barco, Grey's Anatomy, Wink, White Cross, Dickies, Peaches and many other others along with shoes from Dansko, Alegria, Sanita, and others. 

THE HISTORY

It's a family owned business. It's as simple as that.

Started in 2008 by Max and Kristin Ericson, Scrubs Direct opened their first location in St. Paul, MN at the Maplewood Mall. That first store was just the start.

From that single retail location the couple developed a "mobile store" that was able to travel around to any medical facility selling the latest in scrub uniforms along with medical accessories and professional shoes. That mobile store helped spread the word of Scrubs Direct.

Why Duluth?

It's a natural progression if you think about the business model. Duluth is home to thousands of medical employees not to mention hundreds of medical students. There's a need for scrubs and that's clear.

It's also close to home for Max and Kris who are originally from Minong, Wisconsin. It's a win win.

More importantly, with Duluth's medical industry growing with each new year it was a perfect fit for the couple when they began to think about where to expand their business next.

While the Burning Tree Location is away from the core of Duluth's medical facilities it's in an emerging and growing area of Duluth. There are a number of dentistry offices and medical facilities located in the surrounding area with larger medical facilities such as Essentia Health's Hermantown Clinic right down the road.

St. Luke's also recently began construction on the new Miller Creek Medical Clinic that will open next year at the corner of Mall Drive and Loberg Road behind the newly opened Holiday Inn Express and Suites.
