Ten Duluth businesses selected for downtown revitalization grants

The push to spruce up Downtown Duluth continues, with new funding for ten businesses to improve lighting and storefront windows.

Downtown Duluth is providing $2,500 grants to help drive traffic to various businesses, while creating a more-active and engaging environment downtown. These grants are a result of recommendations from Mayor Larson’s Downtown Task Force.

“We’re excited to work with these businesses on their improvements,” said Kristi Stokes of Downtown Duluth. “By working together, we also become more unified in our goal of strengthening the downtown and improving the experience, both day and night.”

Businesses selected include:

  • Vitta Pizza, 307 Canal Park Drive
  • Zeitgeist, 222 East Superior Street
  • LUM Studios/CF Design, 310 East Superior Street
  • Hucklebeary, 218 East Superior Street
  • Duluth’s Best Bread, 120 East Superior Street
  • Lester River Trading Co, 28 N 3rd Ave West
  • Duluth Creative Co, 317 West Superior Street
  • Hemlocks Leatherworks, 115 N 3rd Ave West
  • 144 Music Fashion & More, 26 West First Street
  • Nordic Center, 23 North Lake Ave

Another round of grant opportunities will be made available later this year.
