DULUTH, Minn. — Former employee Derek Medved plans to re-open a Milk House store that closed August 2014, according to the Duluth News Tribune.
“The store was a centerpiece for Gary,” said Medved in the article. “It’s a close-knit community, and the store was very missed. It served a great purpose. It’s just left a dark spot in the neighborhood.”
Medved worked as a cashier at the business when he was 16 before he became a manager, noted the article. He shared in the article that customers and employees knew each other by name.
The store is planned to open April 24, Medved’s 20th birthday, stated the article. The grand opening celebration will take plan in June.
The store will open at 5 a.m. every day, reported the article. It will close at midnight, and Medved plans to be at the store most of the day.
