Another shopping option in the Twin Ports for a variety of supplies and equipment is reportedly slated to open next week. The company has been running an aggressive advertising campaign on radio and TV in recent weeks teasing that they were "opening soon", getting the Duluth area ready for the new store just off Maple Grove Road on Loberg Avenue.

While the company has not formally confirmed this opening date yet, the Duluth News Tribune is reporting that fliers were sent out today with an opening date of Wednesday, August 17 being promoted. This date falls in line with projections about a possible opening date, and haappens to fall one day after a media day the store is holding on August 16, suggesting this date is accurate.

This will be the 36th store in the Mills Fleet Farm chain, offering another option in the region for things like sporting goods, home improvement supplies, clothing, farm supplies, and other items. The store will also feature an auto service department, gas station, lumber, and hardware. This location will also bring upwards of 200 jobs to the area.
