The Central Mini Mall resided at 324 Central Ave. in Duluth’s Spirit Valley in 1979 and was home to such stores as Jeans Jeans and Heather’s Place.
Today, the building houses Beaner’s Central Concert Coffeehouse, where they sell beans instead of jeans.

  1. I wanted this to appear in the print edition, which the News Tribune didn’t do in October 2008. I’ll have a new post later today, too.
