The east metro's busiest shopping mall is seeing a big reshuffle.

The Pioneer Press reports that some of the shift at Rosedale Center, which draws an estimated 12 million visitors a year, comes from changes at the Becker Furniture store. The retailer is relocating to a new, permanent space that will up its floorspace from 30,000 to 38,000 square feet. The new spot in the J.C Penney corridor will include a two-floor furniture store and with a separate mattress shop. The grand opening for the new spot will be scheduled for later in the year.

The story notes that the Becker Furniture upgrade puts other tenants in transition, with Len, Payless Shoes and Creative Hair relocating. The Hollister store recently closed and its spot will be taken over by the Buckle, which is moving within Rosedale to the larger space. Athleta, a women's active-wear store will open in late spring.

Meanwhile, the Business Journal notes the opening of a new restaurant, Digby's in the space that previously housed the California Pizza Kitchen near the AMC 14 theater. The remodeled space seats 150 diners and has garage doors that flip open for al fresco dining.

The Flying Swine Restaurant Holdings group is behind the spot, which features craft beer, burgers and pizza.Once everything is settled at Digby's, Flying Swine will look for new spots to expand.
