A temporary business is becoming permanent in downtown Duluth.

Great Lakes Gifts and Gallery opened Thursday on Superior Street. The retail shop sells things like shirts, puzzles, artwork and other gifts. Owner Gary Lundstrom has been selling his products for years, and is opening downtown after testing out the market over the holidays. 

"When this opportunity came up it was more than a dream come true because I knew that I could fill a shop. I did so with the Skywalk pop-up shop during the holiday season."

The Greater Downtown Council put on the pop-up shop program to offer businesses thinking about moving to the neighborhood a chance to test it out without having to pay rent.
