Parmida Home, a rapidly expanding home decor chain new to the Twin Cities, has signed at lease at the Shops at West End. It brings in a new category to West End, and will take up a considerable chunk of real estate: The 11,000-square-foot store is expected to open across from RAZE in Spring 2012. "It's great to bring in another unique, first to the Twin Cities, retailer to the Shops at West End," senior property manager Michael Landstad said in a statement. According to Parmida's website, the store offers wine and cheese accessories, imported coffees and teas, bath and body, kitchen accessories, candles, gourmet and gifts with furniture and decor for a variety of tastes, from formal to beach house.
Parmida has seven stores in Texas, Colorado, Missouri, Ohio and suburban Chicago.
