    Last night I was coming home from Durham and noticed a new (I just passed this on Sunday) sign up for Duluth Trading at the old HH Gregg location in GSO.

    Hope Im not posting something already here

    The Greensboro location is also going to be a distribution center.

    There is also going to be a Duluth store in the Cross Roads Shopping center in Cary opening late 2018.

    I've been a big fan of their flannels and pants for several years now. It's all made in Vietnam, but it is high quality textiles.

    I passed the Crossroads location 2 weeks ago leaving the hotel on way back from deployment for Florence and it looked like they still had a ways to go. I like their stuff but its $$. I do plan to make a trip there to see what their stuff actually looks like vs the cartoon catalogue.

    Some of their items are better than others and if you get on their email list you will get weekly offers for 15%-30%% discounts. Those offers are for online orders only though.

    I have NOT paid full retail for a single item I have bought from them. I usually pick up the flannels for ~$30 instead of MSRP of $50

    I can vouch for the: Free Swinging Flannels, Shoremans Fleece jackets & vests, and Duluth-Flex Fire Hose pants. Some people rave about the Buck Naked underwear, to me they are ok. YMMV

    My son in law and his brother both work for BNSF railroad and both say Duluth Trading items hold up better than Carthart items.

    I've got a flannel shirt or two and a pair of insulated pants. I guess I'll have to sign up for the emails, check out the items in the store and then buy online. Thanks for the tip!

    Duluth and Wrangler are the only manufacturers who make ladies jeans from 100% cotton denim.

    I cannot stand the spandex garbage the others make.

    I have a few of their shirts, I do appreciate the trim fits, burly weights and arm gussets. I only buy them on sale as well.

    And a shame that wrangler fired their employees for the local store and closed it. They had an employee store that was awesome. I had access years ago and then in their last 2 years by a forum member here. Loved buying their stuff

    Is this the HH Gregg that was right there off of Guilford College Rd. near Dicks Sporting Goods and the closed Macy's building?

    If so, I'm not surprised at all that they are closed. That store was managed by some real winners. I think they had the worst customer service of any company I have ever dealt with during the last 37 years of my adult life.

    I wear spandex leggings and yoga pants in cool weather. I just don't like stretchy jeans. They tend to sag in all the wrong places after sitting in them.

    Not worth the price. Well over $20 per. I just can't justify spending that much.

    I agree the standard $22.50 per pair is indeed overpriced when compared to a 5-pack of Hanes for $15.

    For those that do like them though, all styles are currently on sale for $15 per pair with:

    This is great news! I am a total Duluth brand whore and the majority of my clothes come from them now. They're the only ones who make shirts that fit real people. It will be well worth the drive from Hickory to be able to try stuff on before I buy.

    I have a lot of their long tail T shirts. They have held up remarkably well for being used for gym, yard work, car work, etc. Used an abused, still wearable, although some of the really old ones are faded/stained/pin holes now to the point I should just retire them.

    The shorts and pants have been good to go and I have a couple of their jackets that have worked out really well.

    The trick is to wait until it's off season to catch them really on sale. It's a risk with color/size choice not being available but worth it if you can score what you want.

    I'm looking forward for the store to check a few things out first hand and then will await the email sales.

    Thanks for the tip.....Im keeping this one in mind. I wish i could more shirts in long sizes. I hate to raise my arms up and the tail is halfway up my torso.

    They offer tall versions of most of their shirts AND JACKETS TOO! No more cold crack when sitting down in the winter!

    Stopped by today. Prices are a bit high for things I'd buy for myself. But they have stuff in the women's section I've never seen anywhere else. Some I'd buy for my wife.

    And some odd stuff too

    The Greensboro location had a Army Mule in the foyer when I went by. I love those things.

    My best friend growing up, his dad had one. We'd get drunk and drive it all over the place.

    As for Duluth, I like their stuff OK, but it is overpriced. On sale and with discounts I'd get it, but not retail.

    My favorite "clothing store" is still Costco.
    I buy most of my clothes there.
    That is also why I tend to look like a walking episode of "What Not To Wear."
    Ha!
