Merch Madness is here

No need to go back. You read that correctly; it’s an “e.” C’mon, give our copy editors a break.

There’s no need for a bracket, just a bag, as Merch Madness begins today in downtown Duluth. The four-day sale coincides with the start of the similar-sounding NCAA college men’s basketball tournament.

The participating stores include: Apricot Lane, Art in the Alley, Bagley & Co. Jewelers, Barbo’s Columbia Clothing, Black Water Lounge, Duluth Pack, E’clips on the Lake, ECO, Happy Space, I Love Duluth, Jitters Coffee & Tea, Lake Superior Art Glass, Lillians of Duluth, Mainstream Fashions for Men, Never Too Many, Pineapple Art Center, Protein Pub, Ragstock, Security Jewelers, Siiviis (Sivertson Gallery), and TrailFitters.
