Leaked back in September, the Duluth Trading Company plans to build a store in the Town Madison development.  The store would be located in the West End district of the Town Madison site plan.  Looks like it will be in the NW corner of the West End parcel off of Graphics Drive.  I-565 abuts the north side of the 2.33 acre parcel.  The building will reportedly be 15,566 sqft.




Madison officials would not confirm the store’s interest in the site but confirmed the existence of the planning document.

When contacted by WHNT News 19, a Duluth Trading Company spokesperson said the company does not discuss new stores until “the leasing, permitting and development process has been thoroughly vetted.”

The planning commission’s staff report recommends approving the site plan with some planning and engineering department contingencies.

Duluth Trading Company was founded in 1989 in Belleville, Wis., and specializes in work wear and gear for men and women who “lead a hands-on lifestyle and who value a job well-done.”

Duluth has more than 40 locations, primarily in the Midwest. A location in Madison would be the first in the southeastern United States. Another store is preparing to open in Greensboro, N.C.

Sorry for not posting in a bit.  I hope to catch up since the winter holiday break was not productive for me!
