Local Businesses

businesspicsThanks to Julie Carlson for her work in updating our local business list. 

Periodically, the Duluth Township Newsletter updates a list of local businesses in an effort to make them known locally and to encourage their support and use.

Each known business was contacted for updated information. New businesses were added from official business databases and our Newsletter also had requests for updated information. This list of businesses has been checked over by knowledgeable local residents. Our best guess is that there are many more active small businesses than are listed. If we missed your business, please let us know.

Small businesses are important to our Township and region. Support your neighbors and their local businesses!

Please send corrections and additions to our Town Hall at 525-5705 or email: townhall@duluthtownship.org
