Duluth Trading Co. coming to Spokane Valley
Duluth Trading Co. will open its first store in Washington State in Spokane Valley in mid-2019.
The company has constructed a 15,656-square-foot building at 16314 E. Indiana Ave. The site is very close to the Spokane Valley Mall, adjacent to the Hampton Inn & Suites, and easily accessible from Interstate 90. The store will have 98 parking spaces for shoppers.
Duluth stores primarily offer workwear and gear. The company designs each store to offer a unique experience for shoppers. According to its website, every store “features a fascinating theme, displays, photos and found objects that honor hardworking men and women past and present. It’s not just a store, it’s an experience.”
Wisconsin-based Duluth Trading Co. was launched in 1989 by two brothers in Duluth who initially sold products for tool storage, organization and transport. The company, now headquartered in Belleville, Wisconsin, expanded its line to include clothing and accessories.
The project manager is Minnesota-based Oppidan Investment Co., who has developed more than 450 projects in 35 states and Canada. Duluth Trading Co. has 32 stores across the U.S. and recently opened a store in Portland.
