MSP Retail Openings & Closings (Q1 2013)

Q1 2013 saw the closing of two major retailers in the downtown cores.  In January, Neiman Marcus closed its 118,000-sf store at Gaviidae Common on Nicollet Mall after twenty years of residence in Minneapolis.  And in March, Macy’s shut the doors for good on its 360,000-sf, five-story location on 6th Street in St. Paul.

However, many new restaurants and retailers entered the market that generated much buzz amongst customers throughout the Twin Cities, including Red Cow in the former Blockbuster space near 50th and France and One, Two, Three Sushi in the IDS Center in downtown Minneapolis.  Further, Planet Fitness opened a new location in Roseville taking 30,000-sf of a former Circuit City, TJMaxx opened a 21,641-sf store in Coon Rapids at Riverdale Village Shopping Center, HomeGoods opened a 25,187-sf store in Edina at Centennial Lakes Plaza, and Big Thrill Factory took 34,000-sf of the former Kmart in Minnetonka.
