Mount Royal Center Temporarily Closed Due To Plumbing Issue

UPDATE: Bulldog Pizza and Mount Royal Library are back open as of Monday afternoon.

Additionally, Vanilla Bean wrote in a Facebook post Monday afternoon that they will be open for regular business hours on Tuesday.


DULUTH, Minn. – Several businesses at the Mount Royal Center were closed this past weekend.

According to signs posted on the building, the closure is due to a plumbing issue.

One business we spoke with, that did not want to be named for the story, says they lost thousands of dollars over the weekend, and this plumbing issue has happened twice now in the past year.

The owner of Vanilla Bean- a tenant in the shopping center says- customers will be needed more than ever when the restaurant opens back up on Tuesday.

“When you’re talking thousands of dollars lost- especially over busy weekend- that’s huge. We just hope the public can help get us small business owners up there, get us back on our feet,” Vanilla Bean Owner, Jason Vincent says.

We reached out to management of the building, but they were unavailable for comment.
