Several new retailers to open stores at Edina's Galleria this fall

There has been an unusual level of turnover at the Edina mall this year.

The Galleria in Edina is set to welcome multiple new retailers just in time for the busy holiday season.

The upmarket mall opposite the Southdale Center has announced a flurry of new arrivals that will open in the coming months.

Among those making their debut is Nic + Zoe, the Boston-based retailer that specializes in stylish women's fashion and accessories.

It's opening a 1,500 square-foot store in half of the old Lululemon space, across from Ampersand, next month, marking the first Minnesota standalone store for the brand.

It'll be joined in the other half of the former Lululemon space Warby Parker, the affordable eyewear retailer based in New York, which has another location in Minneapolis' North Loop.

It's slated to open in November in 1,400-square-foot premises.

A local business will also be making its Galleria bow with St. Paul leather bag maker J.W. Hulme opening in October.

It'll be operating as a pop-up shop for the busy holidays period, taking up 2,000-square-foot of space in the former home Scheherezade jewelers, which closed down earlier this year.

J.W. Hulme has been in business since its founding in 1905, with its flagship store on St. Paul's Grand Avenue.

Unusual turnover at the Edina mall

The trio of new arrivals at the Galleria comes shortly after the mall welcomed three other retailers, with Ely's Legacy Toys moving into the former Creative Kidstuff space, and fashion retailers Johnny Was and Suitsupply recently opening in Edina.

Another retailer making waves at the Galleria is Lili Salon/Tonic Barber, the women and men's grooming experience that this winter moves into larger premises at the mall.

While the new additions are welcome at the mall, the Galleria has recently undergone an unusual level of retailer turnover, with the likes of Z Gallerie and the aforementioned Scheherezade among those closing this year.

Major tenant Restoration Hardware is likely to leave at the end of the year, with the retailer opening a new, 60,000-square-foot showroom across the street near Southdale at the end of this month, while its original anchor tenant, Gabbert's, is leaving in mid-2020 for new premises in Bloomington.

The Star Tribune reports that the Galleria is the best revenue-producing mall in the region, generating annual sales of $800 per square foot.
