More retailers sign up for Ridgedale Center's new 'Nordstrom wing'

The Ridgedale Center has enticed several more upscale retailers to open new locations at the mall as part of its Nordstrom-led expansion.

The much-anticipated grand opening of Nordstrom will take place at 10 a.m. on Oct. 2, as the retailer welcomes shoppers to its new space in Minnetonka that used to be home to Macy's, before it consolidated its two stores at the mall into one.

Multiple other commercial units were built as part of the expansion, and the MSP Magazine has revealed some of the new names confirmed to be joining Nordstrom.

Pottery Barn, Williams-Sonoma and Brooks Brothers are the latest to have signed on for the "Nordstrom wing," with three opening this coming spring, while the mall has also agreed to a deal for a Haagen-Dazs franchise.

The magazine said that landing these retailers continues a "streak" for Ridgedale by enticing brands tailored towards the mall's "affluent" but underserved market.

The Business Journal notes that it will be the Brook Brothers store in the metro area, the fourth for Williams-Sonoma and the fifth for Pottery Barn.

It will be Nordstrom's second Twin Cities location, according to the Ridgedale Center, taking up a 138,000 square feet of space in the mall. Its other is a 210,000 square-foot flagship store in the Mall of America.

Ridgedale is one of several metro area malls pushing ahead with major expansions, with work on the $1.5 billion addition to the Mall of America ongoing, and the Rosedale Center recently announcing plans for a 140,000 square foot extension with a new, as yet unnamed anchor store.
