The growing network of retail stores for Duluth Holdings has grown by two more.

The Belleville-based retailer, known for its campy-captioned clothing such as Longtail T Shirts and Buck Naked Underwear, has announced that it has opened its 30th and 31st Duluth Trading Co. stores, one of which is in Wisconsin.

The company opened its Waukesha store on Wednesday at 2310 W. Bluemound Road and a store in Wixom, Michigan, on Thursday, and are the final two stores to open in 2017 for Duluth, which has been rapidly expanding its brick and mortar retail foot print.

“Waukesha is well situated to serve not only our many loyal Duluth fans in the Milwaukee metro region, but also the growing population along the Milwaukee Madison corridor. Wixom, on the western side of the Detroit metro area, is also highly accessible to Lansing and surrounding towns," Stephanie Pugliese, Duluth's CEO said.

Duluth Trading has 14 more retail stores open compared to a year ago and in September opened its first store in the western U.S. in the Denver suburb of Thornton, Colorado. In 2018, the company plans to open a store in Anchorage, Alaska, in a space that had been home to a Sports Authority store. The company has also announced plans for stores in Lubbock and Arlington, Texas.
