A few years ago, when executives at DigiKey Electronics began to plan an expansion project, they looked at several possible locations in the Midwest. That wasn’t surprising, considering the Thief River Falls electronic parts distributor expected that it would need to hire another 1,000 workers but was, at the same time, located in one of the more lightly populated regions of Minnesota – one with a tight labor market to boot. Ultimately, DigiKey decided to build its new distribution center right at home in Pennington County, in far northwestern Minnesota, where the company got its start in 1972 – decades before it became the mega-business that generated $3.1 billion in revenue last year. The decision heartened the town of 8,600, whose identity has become increasingly tied to the fortunes of DigiKey. Executives won’t reveal where else they looked, or say too much about why they chose to expand at home, but financial incentives certainly tell part of the story. … [Read more...] about No place like home: Looking to expand, electronic parts giant DigiKey scouts the Midwest — but stays put in Minnesota
Sections SEARCH Skip to content Skip to site index Economy Subscribe Log In Log In Today’s Paper Economy | How Tariffs Stained the Washing Machine Market Supported by A year after the Trump administration tried to help American manufacturers of laundry equipment, prices are up, sales have fallen and stock prices are down. ByJim Tankersley Jan. 25, 2019 You may not have appreciated it at the time — golden eras have a habit of coming and going like that — but a five-year stretch that started in 2013 was a pretty great time to buy a washing machine. Inflation for home laundry equipment, as measured by the Labor Department, fell steadily during that time, which meant you could buy the same washer your neighbor bought last year for less money. Or you could buy a better one at the same price. Great news for your clothes, though maybe bad news for your friendship, if your neighbor was the covetous … [Read more...] about How Tariffs Stained the Washing Machine Market

Toro A high-quality snow blower is easy on your back, can handle several inches of heavy snow, and works on a variety of surfaces. I liked the Toro SnowMaster 24-Inch Single-Stage Gas Snow Blower because it's self-propelled to match my gait, the joystick discharge chute control works smoothly, and it could handle my gravel driveway and city sidewalks. Though it is more expensive than most single-stage throwers (currently $749 at The Home Depot), it clears a wider path and is backed by a three-year limited warranty. Thanks to years of skating in one direction while playing roller derby, my back is perpetually in pain. Every few months, it gets to the point where I'm laid up for a week or so. Anything can aggravate it. So, … [Read more...] about This $750 snow blower is so fun to use and easy on my back, it actually has me looking forward to heavy snowfalls
