Duluth Trading Co. retail store is opening its first location in Connecticut, and it will be located in Fairfield County.

The store, at 3 Sugar Hollow Road in the Whole Foods Shopping Plaza in Danbury, will be the company’s first in Connecticut and its 53rd location nationwide. The store will open Thursday, May 23.

There will be a ribbon cutting at 9 a.m. May 23 and lumberjack shows at 10:30 a.m. and noon.

The Wisconsin-based company was founded in 1989 by two brothers in Duluth, Minnesota, who invented the “Bucket Boss,” a canvas tool organizer that fits around a drywall bucket. 

The brothers subsequently launched a catalog business that later became Duluth Trading Co., which sold products for tool storage, organization, and transport.

The company, now headquartered in Belleville, Wisconsin, has expanded its product line to include clothing, workwear, and accessories.
