Macy's consolidating 2 stores as part of Ridgedale Mall revamp


A big step in the transformation of Ridgedale Center in Minnetonka will take place next week when Macy's consolidates its two stores at the mall, the Star Tribune reports.

Once Macy's closes its men's and home annex next Thursday to move into a new store, a new Nordstrom store will take its place.

According to the paper, the new Macy’s space is 290,000 square feet, smaller than the 337,000 square feet of the two stores the company is moving out of. The company insists, however, they are not downsizing stocked items.

The old Macy's locations will be demolished to make way for the new 138,000-square-foot Nordstrom store, the Business Journal said.

The new Nordstrom store – expected to open in fall 2015 – will be company's second full-line store in the Twin Cities, the publication said. Nordstrom already has a 210,000-square-foot location at the Mall of America.

As part of the Nordstrom build-out, Ridgedale Mall will add 80,000 square feet of space for new retailers, the Star Tribune says. The mall is also reportedly going to upgrade its interior.

The Ridgedale makeover comes as the Mall of America plans a $1.5 billion expansion.
