Update On Tower Avenue Construction, Farmers Market Showcases Business
With all the Summer construction going on in Duluth, people forget the huge upheaval going on in Superior, especially on Tower Avenue. Some of the businesses realize the updates need to be done, but it is making a dent and sometimes hole in their business.
Some of the Tower businesses want you to know they are still open and still trying to do business. Some of them are making appearances at the farmers market at Tower and Belknap at Center City Park.
You can buy hot dogs and shop some crafters too. Take advantage of some deals because the business affected by the construction want you to see their products and come back after the construction ends.
According to the Superior BID page
