Global Village to close Tuesday

An owner says the economy is responsible for the business closing.

After nearly 40 years of business, Global Village Importers in Minneapolis will close Tuesday. Located on the West Bank, co-owner Marcia Keegan said the closing comes because âÄúsales were not there to support us and in these hard economic times we didnâÄôt feel that we could keep up.” Global Village Importers specializes in unique items from countries such as India, Indonesia, Thailand, Myanmar and Nepal. Despite the Minneapolis location closing, the Duluth store will remain open. Read the Minnesota Daily Tuesday for a full report on the business closing.
