Final day on Superior Street for Hucklebeary Duluth
More changes are coming to Superior Street, as the demolition of a building is displacing three businesses in that area.
Hucklebeary is a well supported shop in that building. This Valentine’s Day is their last in-person day at the storefront they’ve made home for the last four years.
"We survived Superior Street construction, we survived the pandemic. What’s a move?" said owner, Emily Ekstrom. "We can do that. We know how to adapt to this and the flexibility."
After learning their building is up for demolition, the store began creating a new game-plan for their business.
"We will probably operate and run like a warehouse for a while. We’re going to move our stuff into a smaller location and we can ship things to directly to that recipient, and offer curbside pickup times."
In the end, support from the area making the shift a little easier for Ekstrom, saying she can’t help but feel a sense of accomplishment looking back at her time in the storefront.
"I’ve been feeling so much love and support from Duluth thinking about four years ago. This next chapter is what growth looks like."
