Duluth Loves Local is a community of local-loving Duluthians who support the hard-working, independent small businesses that make Duluth such a great place to work, visit and raise a family.

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 our friends and neighbors.
