Two new Sierra stores to open in Twin Cities next week

There had been talk of a third new store opening as well.

Sierra, the cut-price sports and outdoor wear chain, will open two new stores in the Twin Cities next week.

The retailer, which is owned by TJ Maxx and was formerly known as Sierra Trading Post, will open its latest locations in Burnsville and Eden Prairie next Saturday, Oct. 3.

It will bring the retailer's presence in the Twin Cities to five stores, adding to existing locations in Eagan, Woodbury, and Richfield.

The new stores were announced back in early March, with reports at the time suggesting it was also planning a new store at Rosedale Center, though this has yet to be confirmed.

Sierra sells apparel, footwear and accessories that is "generally 20-60% below full-price retailers' ... regular prices on comparable merchandise."

"Sierra provides excellent value and selection on top brands and other high-quality apparel, footwear, and gear for your family’s active and outdoor lifestyle needs," said Gennifer Hobbs, Sierra marketing director, in a press release. 

"We encourage everyone to participate in outdoor and fitness activities and want our products to appeal to everyone who shops with us in-store or online."

The stores will open at 9 a.m. on Oct. 3, with face masks required as per state rules. The company also says it has enhanced cleaning protocols in place, including protective shields at registers and frequently cleaned carts.
