Happy Thursday, friends!

We wanted to write a post today on the basics, expectations, and fun plans ahead for Duluth Pack over some morning coffee with you all. Maybe you’re already at work, maybe you’re reading this though you phone screen in bed, or maybe you’re curled up on your couch. Either way, we wanted to catch up with you all and fill you in on plans and events to stay tuned for.

Summer is right around the corner and that means event are ahead. The ever anticipated and yearly event, Grandma’s Marathon is one we always look forward to. However, this year in August Tall Ships is once again sailing into the Duluth, MN Harbor, which is right where our retail location is in Canal Park. Tourists of all kinds enjoy the entertainment and we look so forward to seeing you all in our retail store as well to pick up your new Duluth Pack items.

While enjoying the hot and humid temperatures, you will want to cool off with a refreshing and cold brew. We recommend the recently launched Duluth Pack Pale Ale that is crafted by our friends at legendary brewery, The Duluth Brewhouse located in the Fitger’s complex.

Lastly, we have not only new apparel that will be hitting stores and our website soon, but new products , and new collaborations just on the horizon. Have any guesses what and who they might be with?

Have a fantastic weekend ahead, folks!

Each and every day we truthfully love what we do. Sure, somedays like a Monday can be hard to get out of your warm bed and drive to work (especially in a winter storm) . But, once we arrive and are surrounded by the constant energy, we’re so happy where we are able to call our career. Every employee of Duluth Pack has a different story to tell and that’s what not only keeps it fun, but different day in and day out. So it made sense for us to do a round up of 10 reasons we love where we work.

1) Location.

As human beings, we hear the phrase, “Location. location. location.” That’s exactly what we are focusing on in point number one of why we love where we work. Out of anywhere our headquarters could be located, Duluth, MN is exactly where we want to be. For 134 continuous years in business and existence, Duluth Pack has called Duluth, MN home. We are so proud of where we are, that we not only put the location in our name, but on our logo we also states the geographical area too. We love this area and you bet your bottom dollars we have another 134 + continuous years here.

2) Title.

Duluth is the oldest canvas and leather bag and pack maker in the USA. This title that we hold is not only something we are proud of, but one that we are extremely humbled by. The fact Duluth Pack has been continuously around since 1882 is something that makes us rub our eyes real hard and recognize that it is pretty great to be the one, the only, and the original.

3) Ethics.

Being with a company that focuses on not only the needs of the business, but it’s employees is absolutely ideal. That is what we have all found with the Duluth Pack company. Even with the growth, the Duluth Pack employees meet weekly to discuss concepts, ideas, plans, and situations that we can improve, grow, or develop from. This is incredible, because everyone from all aspects of the brand – production, marketing, shipping, customer service, retail, outside sales, etc – can speak up and describe what they are seeing or hearing. This puts everyone at an even playing field and that everyone is heard regardless of what their business card says their position is.

4) People.

Duluth Pack is always so great as sharing how close we are with our customers. Something many people don’t see or always hear about is how close the Duluth Pack employees are. Actually, we call ourselves one big family. Whether we are taking lunch breaks together, enjoying coffee, having after work get togethers, or just sitting down and bonding over something personal, we consider ourselves one big team.

5) Customers.

Our customers are the most loyal, the most supportive, and the most adventurous people we know. We are so grateful for every customer who has ever purchased a sticker to someone who has invested in one of our duffle bags. Our customers we consider friends and are second to none. Every single individual who purchased something from Duluth Pack allows us to keep doing what we love every single day and that’s helping you all invest in the best Made in America canvas and leather products on the market.

6) Products.

We may sounds bias or brief in a way, but our story is as simple and powerful and that goes for our products as well. Each product we may is not to life a fragile life. Our products want to explore, travel and adventure with you and that means we need to handcraft the most durable, but stylish packs and bags we can. Every single Duluth Pack handcrafted item comes with a lifetime guarantee on all craftsmanship and hardware. In simple text, that’s our rivets, buckles, zippers, and sewing seams. If you want to read more on our Lifetime Guarantee please click HERE . Lastly, every single Duluth Pack handcrafted item not only comes with a lifetime guarantee, but is signed by the craftsperson who created it just for you. Don’t know where to find their name? Look for the Duluth Pack and Made in America tag inside your Duluth Pack item. Flip over the Duluth Pack tag and it will reveal the craftsperson’s signature. If you’re in the Duluth area, please stop by our factory for a free tour to meet them. If not, click HERE to read their fun bios!

7) Discounts.

Obviously you want to be passionate of the products and brand you work for, but it’s even better when your work gives you a nice and generous discount to enjoy as well. We won’t be sharing an percentages, but let’s say that we are treated very well. Not only do we get to enjoy discounts on the Duluth Pack handcrafted products, but also on all the items sold in our retail store in Canal Park from other brands we carry, like The North Face, Patagonia, and Darn Tough socks, too!

8) Growth.

Finding not only a job, but a career with a company that is growing can be rare. Not only is Duluth Pack growing each day, but knowing that there is potential to grow not only in our positions, but within our departments is crucial. It’s a relief to know that the company you love to work for loves what you do and wants to work with your wants and needs as well.

9) Collaborations.

Collaborations and partnerships between bloggers, influencers, celebrities, venues, and other brands not only is hard work, but it’s an absolute hoot for all involved. With months or even up to a year in advance, Duluth Pack’s PR and Marketing teams are working day in and day out of who we can collaborate with to handcraft new collections that leave you all drooling and wanting more. Can you guess what are next projects are? P.s. we just launched The Times Collection last Thursday with Faribault Woolen Mills wool. Check it out HERE .

10) American.

Duluth Pack is an American company proudly employing Americans. Not only do we handcraft our American made products in Duluth, MN, but we also have our own Distribution Center (shipping center), our own in-house customer service team, our own marketing team, and an entire 8,500 square foot retail store that employs not only Americans, but Minnesotans. Also, Duluth Pack sources materials, like our leather in the states as well. Our leathers are from the Dakotas and Nebraska and then are tanned in Wisconsin and Minnesota. Again, more Americans helping other Americans. It’s always full circle for us.

We hope you enjoyed the inside scoop on what it’s like to work at Duluth Pack. We can’t wait for all the future adventures with you all and greatly appreciate your loyalty and support. Want to be a part of the Duluth Pack team? Apply HERE .

We live in a world where everything is everywhere. Mass production is at it’s highest. Products are flying off the shelves and most companies are focused on quantity rather than quality. However, Duluth Pack is the black sheep in the world of production. We don’t mass produce, but rather fixate on creating the best product for you, even if it takes extra TLC and time to do so. While each pack is signed by the craftsperson who handcrafted the bag, tote, purse, pack, and other Duluth Pack accessories just for you, the current generations are still looking for something.. more . By more what do we mean? Personalization is the word. Us as living breathing beautiful creatures, we want to feel like a part of a process. Have an emotional and personal connection to something. Duluth Pack can give you just that experience.

Whether you trot into our retail store located in Canal Park or scan our website ( here ) you come across an abundance of products that can be handcrafted for you. But how to get that personal touch we talk about? You can shop any one of our Duluth Pack products and request a monogram embroidery. It’s the ultimate touch for that perfect gift. It’s like the cherry on top of a really good sundae.

Start personalizing your pack today. Click THIS link and get started!

Happy shopping, friends!
