For an oasis of calm at the Mall of America this weekend, step into the new Intelligent Nutrients store, now
open on the first floor, south side. This is the first store beyond corporate headquarters in Northeast Minneapolis for the organic beauty brand that is Horst Rechelbacher's follow-up to Aveda. The spare but warm space has a calming, global vibe with a wall of essential oils in colorful bottles, and small gold angels and Buddhas sprinkled throughout. Behind a door at the back of the store is a treatment room, opening soon, where there are two stations for cranial massage, skin analysis and other specialized treatments. This is the beginning of an effort to amp up the brand...read all about it in the December issue of Mpls.St.Paul Magazine, and stop by the store this weekend to meet Rechelbacher, who plans to work the counter and take appointments with guests. He's a retailer at heart.
