We are a grassroots movement that wants consumers to think local first, and by doing so, positively impact the place we call home. When you buy products and services from independent and locally-owned businesses, you’re supporting the Duluth economy. Best of all, you’re supporting your friends and neighbors!

Shopping local is extra rewarding./

With the Portside Pass, we’ve created a program to encourage people to explore local businesses in and around Duluth. The 2020 Portside Pass unlocks exclusive unlimited-use deals good at local restaurants, retail stores and other Duluth businesses. It’s a simple way to get people to support our local economy – with the incentive of a nice discount.

Deals at Local Businesses

More than 25 Duluth businesses are participating! Each offer a special deal for Portside Pass members.

Exclusive Offers

Our partner businesses will be announcing special offers only available to Portside Pass holders.

Support Friends & Neighbors

When you frequent a business with your Portside Pass, your money stays in the Duluth community!

Unlimited Usage

Most deals can be redeemed over and over again, and many businesses change their deal each month! Check back often.


The 2020 Portside Pass is an annual rewards and loyalty discount program. Purchase our specially-designed leather keychain and present it at participating businesses for exclusive rewards!
