Co-founders Cory Netland and David Fitch debuted their craft hot dog creations last summer in Duluth. With the new home base, UpDawg will be able to offer its food regularly to customers and can prepare for larger catering events with the full-scale kitchen.

Netland and Fitch said they will be taking over the Average Joe's kitchen within the next month. It was previously occupied by Cousin Chuy's, which has moved to downtown Duluth and reopened as Loaf and Ladle.

Indigo The Label is a women's lifestyle boutique offering clothing, accessories and housewares co-owned by Grace Shervey and Cait Lombard. The boutique's first location opened in Shell Lake in 2019.

"Coming from a small town, we know how hard it is to find cutting-edge trends, so we decided to open Indigo The Label and build confidence through fashion and creativity while also empowering entrepreneurs like ourselves," Shervey said. "We look forward to being a part of the Fitger's family and the Duluth community."

Indigo The Label will be open at Fitger's, 600 E. Superior St., from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursdays and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.

Cloquet Sporting Goods to close next month

Cloquet Sporting Goods announced on social media earlier this month that the business will be closing as of April 1. According to the post, the pandemic has made it difficult for the sporting goods store to stay in business.

Cloquet Sporting Goods opened in June 2020 at 1111 Cloquet Ave., buying and selling new and gently used sporting equipment.
