Shop doors keep opening at the Mall of America, which has added 10 new tenants in recent months to its more than 500 stores.
The megamall detailed the openings in a news release Tuesday. Some have been mentioned before (such as Duck Donuts, which opened last month more than two years after announcing its plans). Other tenants haven't previously been widely discussed publicly.
Here's the list:

ALAND is billed as a K-fashion shop, with nearly 700 brands available at the store. That includes clothes, shoes, accessories and beauty products. This is the third ALAND location in the U.S. The shop just celebrated its grand opening at the mall.
