SPONSORED Since 1976, Polarn O. Pyret has been dressing children for all the challenges of the weather—from rain to snow to even sun. Happy, warm, and dry children is their promise. The brand, known by its nickname PO.P, is excited to bring all this expertise to a similar climate in the Twin Cities along with the best in play wear and party clothes that are as beautiful as they are easy to wash. PO.P wants to be a one-stop-shop for today's busy parents and gift givers—from rain boots to corduroys and merino wool socks—PO.P has it all. Polarn O. Pyret means "Buddy and the Little Guy" in Swedish, and it is a brand that holds true to a Swedish ethic of value for money that never compromises on style, function, and Scandinavian design. Please come visit their new store at the Galleria in Edina.
The Galleria location is the fourth Polarn O. Pyret store in the U.S., and the first in the Midwest. The ultimate in kid-friendly shopping, Polarn O. Pyret’s clothing is designed to be handed down from child to child, and their stores are built to encourage creative play. The brand hosts a variety of in-store events, which are intended to be fun for kids and their families alike. Come to one of their Pippi events and read stories with Sweden’s most famous story book character as well as have your child’s photo taken with her! Come do your holiday shopping with PO.P and enjoy a glass of warm, spiced (but non-alcoholic) Swedish glug and traditional ginger snaps. The store provides complimentary gift wrapping and will be delighted to ship gifts wherever they need to go this holiday season. Polarn O. Pyret’s knowledgeable staff at the Galleria is also more than happy to make gift recommendations, which will suit even the fussiest of recipients! Polarn O.
