Nordstrom to Open Second Store Minneapolis at Ridgedale Center
Seattle-based Nordstrom announced plans to open a full-line store in Minnetonka, Minn. at Ridgedale Center, which is owned by General Growth Properties, Inc. The new store will be approximately 138,000 square feet and will open in fall 2015.
The Ridgedale Center store will be Nordstrom's second full-line store in Minnesota and will join the Nordstrom Mall of America store in serving customers throughout the Twin Cities area. The Nordstrom Mall of America store opened in 1992 and is located about 20 miles southeast of Ridgedale Center. The company also operates two Nordstrom Racks in the area, at Mall of America and at Arbor Lakes in Maple Grove.
"Our Mall of America store is one of our most successful stores and we believe we can better serve our Minneapolis-St. Paul customers with a second location," said Erik Nordstrom , president of stores for Nordstrom. "We are excited to recommit to Ridgedale as we think it's a terrific mall and will make it more convenient for more customers to be able to shop with us."
Ridgedale Center is the most productive, regional shopping center on the west side of Minneapolis-St. Paul. The one-million-square-foot property features an impressive mix of retailers that includes the Apple Store, Coach, J. Jill , Hollister and White House | Black Market. The property is a sought-after shopping destination in the Twin Cities area, with convenient, immediate access from two interstate highways.
