Joy Herbert, owner of Little Neetchers in West Duluth, has recognized that over the past few years, West Duluth has lacked a connected feeling among it’s businesses.

Herbert now hopes the inaugural Winter West Market will help connect businesses in the Duluth neighborhood.

Winter West Market will bring together 12 businesses that are all within walking distance of each other.

Each business will be selling their own unique items, and shoppers will be able to take part in specials and deals in every store.

If people visit at least four of the businesses that are participating, they will be entered in to win one of several giveaways provided. Fox 21
