Dungeon’s End Game Store Closes for Good – Up News Info

DULUTH — The Dungeon’s End game store has closed for good, owners Mason Froberg and Alta Wickham announced Monday night on Facebook.

The store at 325 N. Central Ave., which sold card and board games, puzzles, dice and miniatures, operated in the Spirit Valley neighborhood of West Duluth for 12 years. Dungeon’s End also had an area where people could congregate and play together.

“Once again, we want to thank all of the wonderful and incredible people we have met over the past twelve years,” they wrote in the post. “We will always fondly remember all the memories we made with amazing people as we helped facilitate the growth of the local gaming community.”

Froberg and Wickham said they were moving to the West Coast and had no time to comment further as they worked to sell the store’s merchandise at discounted prices and pack up their remaining items.

In 2016, Froberg told the News Tribune they opened the shop to combat the perception that Duluth lacked things to do and as a way to bring people together for fun. According to dozens of comments on the Dungeon’s End Facebook page, their goal was achieved, as people thanked them for providing space in the community.
