Economy claiming small businesses across the Range

Two anecdotes don’t make evidence but it bears mentioning that two very recognizable downtown Hibbing businesses are closing (The Flower Basket and John Peterson’s photography studio). I’m hearing that conditions are very difficult for small businesses across the Iron Range. With no mines currently in production places like the Range should brace for what could be a very difficult couple of years. I imagine similar conditions exist right now across the Rust Belt and the Plains.


  1. So, so sad.
    We can only pray that this will turn around.
    Be strong good people.
