Mill Pond Mercantile building in New London gets new owner, new purpose and new name


NEW LONDON—The Mill Pond Mercantile building in downtown New London has new owners.

The Goose Group, which currently owns three businesses in Perham, will be opening Lucky Duck in New London.

Featuring a unique line of toys, games, puzzles and old-fashioned treats, the retail store is tentatively scheduled to open in mid-May.

“Our goal is to make people happy,” said Doug Huebsch, owner and CEO. “We want everyone to leave the store with a big smile on their face.”

Laura Bjerke, vice president of operations, said they want Lucky Duck to be a “fun, family destination store” in the community.

The popular Mill Pond Mercantile closed in December after owners Ginny Knapp and Anita Stulen announced they were retiring and selling the building.
