|Re-entered DLTH today. For some strange reason thinking of the Zappos acquisition by Amazon. At this point in time. In due time I see Amazon going more brick in mortar. Whole Foods just might be the start of a trend. This time only more smaller niche acquisitions they can continue to grow as not to stir the pot. As JCP & Sears and most clothing retailers are struggling. This company seems to getting it right. |

P.S. Carhart is another a company who's product I use and reminds me of Duluth. Woolrich is another.
>Carhart sells via many kinds of retailers but refuses to allow discount stores such as K-Mart to carry its products in order to protect its brand.
>Woolrich Awhile back the company announced they had plans to move more of their workforce to the United States.
Can textiles come back to the USA again? Many of these retailers had to cut their US workforce to MFG. overseas to be competitive. Just maybe customer experience. Along with excellent marketing, and US factories manned by efficient equipment can change that.?
