Locally Grown Series – Part 1: Paul

The first segment of our new “Locally Grown Series

This series will highlight some of our local heros: awesome people from the Duluth area, doing cool things, that happen to carry a Duluth Pack.

Read along as we meet these people and share their stories:


Local Grown Series Test

Paul Connolly, Web Designer at Maurices, bought his 2012-2013 Trapper Series Wool Scout Pack because he needed a simple backpack for his urban commute. With his design background, the collaboration between us and the Faribault Woolen Mill was right up his alley.

Paul’s major hobby is playing music: he’s in a band, organizes a music magazine, and writes for a few others.

He likes living in Duluth for many reasons; one is the accessible arts and music scene. A favorite local spot of his is the Electric Fetus. He worked there while in school and loves coming back.

When pressed for his “guilty pleasure” Paul claimed he “could solve crimes and prosecute with his sleuthing skills,” all due to the “unreasonable amount of time” he’s spent watching Law and Order.


We don’t blame you, Paul! Thanks for taking the time to chat with us.
