Red Wing Pottery, an institution in the Mississippi River town since the 1860s, is facing sale or closure as it struggles to compete with bigger retailers. Gillmer says that the business will fold by the end of the year if no buyer emerges. Gillmer says there just aren’t enough discretionary dollars to support businesses like his in its current format.
