New Boat, Minnesota-Themed Retail Store Opens in Duluth’s Lincoln Park

DULUTH, Minn.- A new retail store held its grand opening in Duluth’s Lincoln Park neighborhood Saturday.

The blast of a real ship’s foghorn signaled the opening of Boathouse Treats and Treasures.

The store is packed with vintage books and home goods, along with some nautical and Minnesota-themed knick knacks.

Owner Beth Petrowske, a former public affairs official for MnDOT, said she’s excited to bring something new and needed to the area.

“We’re hoping to offer some retail opportunities for people we have a lot of great restaurants and breweries down here but very little retail,” Petrowske said. “This has always been of great interest to me I’m a collector myself so I’ve got an idea of what other people like to collect.”

The store is open Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m.-6 p.m., and Fridays and Saturdays until 7 p.m. Sunday hours are noon to 5 p.m.
