Norby's: A proud tradition
It was a little over 100 years ago, on March 17, 1906, that Norby's Department Store first opened its doors in downtown Detroit Lakes.
Though the St. Patrick's Day opening might not make apparent sense, given the fact that brothers L.J. and G.J. Norby were not of Celtic descent, it undoubtedly put the "luck of the Irish" on their side. The family has continued to operate a successful retail department store in the same location for more than a century now.
