If you’re a bargain hunter, you know the feeling: It’s the overwhelming, insatiable urge to find discounts, and the unparalleled joy of finding that one item or items far under the retail price.

With dozens of local shops, malls, and outlet stores, Duluth is a shopping mecca where you can always find a deal.
