Skywalk Re-Opens after Two-Month Closure, Businesses Hope for Foot Traffic Again

Frame Corner and Gallery looks to recover as long as people come in to shop.

DULUTH, Minn.- Downtown Duluth is reconnected once again with the Skywalk back open after a two-month closure due to COVID-19.

The Skywalk was noticibly emptier than usual, but that didn’t stop businesses from swinging their doors open.

Frame Corner and Gallery in the Holiday Center has been selling custom frames through curbside pickup but owner Sara Sarvella said she’s looking forward to seeing customers checking out products in person again, as long as they do so safely.

“I just hope people come in with masks on, so we can protect each other,” Sarvella said. “So I got sanitizers at the counter but it’s kind of like one of those businesses that people have to come in and kind of see and look what they would like for custom framing and artwork.”

The Skywalk system is now open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. Doors will be propped open to limit touching and crews will be doing more frequent cleaning in high-traffic areas.
