If you think of Red Wing, MN, what comes to mind? Possibly the scenic look of the Mississippi River, the bluffs. Home of the flagship Red Wing Shoe store and museum, and the Red Wing Stoneware pottery company. Unfortunately, the business landscape will be changing soon, as the Red Wing Stoneware pottery company will be closing up shop after 142 years in business. While the company has operated under several names, Red Wing Stoneware and Pottery was originally established in 1877.

The announcement was made on the Red Wing Stoneware and Pottery Facebook page on August 26th. Their full post is below:

The company will close its current retail location. During the transition period, Red Wing Stoneware will continue to sell its products and could continue to work on special projects after the location has closed.

That is a long time to be in business, and they do have a loyal following. We are sorry to see them go.
