Southdale Center opens 4 new stores for the holidays

The new shops are only available during the holiday season.

Planning on heading to Southdale Center in Edina for some holiday shopping this year? If so, be on the lookout for four new stores that are opening just for the holidays, with mall officials claiming each store "boasts unique and season gift offerings." 

All four of the new retailers are already up and running.

– XOXO Cookies offers fresh-to-order gourmet cookies that themed after the hit TV show "Gossip Girls." 

– CuddleMutt is a store designed for your dogs, with it offering "unique dog apparel and accessories." A portion of all proceeds will be donated to a local rescue shelter. 

– Northern Glasses has an expansive selection of glassware, including pint glasses, travel mugs and more. Customized products are also available, and a portion of proceeds will be donated to charity:water, which brings drinkable water to people in developing countries. 

– 5th Grant Boutique is a Rochester-based store that provides seasonal home decor, including locally made furniture, candles, soaps, hand towels and more. 

Meanwhile, we're closing in on dates when kids can begin meeting Santa Claus at the mall. At Southdale, Santa will be made available daily from Nov. 22 through Dec. 24.
