Get Downtown Week discounts and specials
It’s all about visiting a new business and trying new things as “Get Downtown Week” in Duluth is in full swing. The event runs from April 24-29.
“We get area businesses that are breweries, restaurants, and retailers together, and we participate in promotions throughout sort of similar to a small business Saturday,” said Melissa LaTour, Special Events Coordinator for Downtown Duluth. It’s six days of encouraging people to discover something new at the shops and restaurants in the heart of Duluth.
“The customers and the restaurants and the businesses that are taking part are super excited to see that activation and that increased traffic for the event. It’s during a slower time of the year, so any time that downtown Duluth can assist, we try to help work with the businesses,” LaTour mentioned.
This is the city’s third year bringing together the community and local businesses to celebrate what downtown Duluth has to offer.
“I think Duluth has always prided itself on supporting its small businesses and supporting its local businesses. So any chance we get to give back to the community we love, we love supporting our patrons as much as they support us. So it’s really this is all about celebrating all of the customers that choose to come into our stores,” Owner of Duluth Kitchen Company, Alex Kulstad says.
There are discounts at places like the Duluth Kitchen Company and Flagship, meal deals at spots like 7West Taphouse and Howard’s Que, and drink specials at Black Water Lounge and Vikre Distillery.
“A lot of the businesses are really receptive to having a promotion that is special to them. So we kind of left it in the hands of the businesses to do that special promotion for get downtown. So some places might have a 10% off everything in the store or a 20% off. Others are doing a buy one get one half, some are doing like a free something if you make a purchase. So it just depends,” said LaTour.
