Arlington (Tarrant County) – Duluth Holdings Inc. plans to build a Duluth Trading Company store in Arlington and has invited certain general contractors to submit bids. This is a rebid with a September 19 deadline.
Another Duluth Trading store breaks ground this month in Lubbock, and construction documents are pending for a store in Denton. These will be Duluth Trading’s first stores in Texas.
The Duluth Trading store will be located at the southeast corner of the intersection of Interstate 20 and Osprey Drive, just north of the Arlington Municipal Airport.
The facility developer/owner on this site is Oppidan Investment Company of Excelsior, Minnesota. Oppidan specializes in retail, multifamily and some mixed use development.
The Arlington story will be a 2-story, 40-foot-tall structure with an area of about 14,459 square feet. It will include an mezzanine level with a balcony that overlooks the center section of the ground floor.
