Gene Caballero, co-founder of GreenPal, said more than 1,000 Duluth owners have signed up to use the app and about 25 service providers offer their lawn care and now snow removal services.
Owners can list their properties with their date of service and snow removal needs. Landscaping and snow removal professionals can bid on properties, then owners can choose who they want to work with based on the seller’s ratings, reviews and price, and pay for them through the app.
The app allows the exchange to happen without the need for face-to-face transactions or conversations, eliminating the risk of spreading diseases like COVID-19. According to Caballero, more than 30% of the app’s more than one million users across the country are 60 years of age or older.
Users can organize one-off services or regular snow removal throughout the season. To use GreenPal, download the app or visit yourgreenpal.com/local/lawn-care-duluth-mn.

The Oliver Inn boutique hotel, located at 132 E. Superior St. in downtown Duluth, is now open to guests. The hotel, named after architect Duluth Oliver Traphagen, is housed in the old town hall building he designed.

There are currently five bedrooms available, with room for two to five people per bedroom. Each room is named after historical figures from Duluth, and the old town council meeting room has been transformed into a suite. The hotel will have 12 rooms upon completion.
