Pottery Barn, Williams-Sonoma and Brooks Brothers are the latest retailers to sign on at Ridgedale Center's new Nordstrom wing. All three will open spring 2016. And, there will be ice cream: Ridgedale also inked a deal for a Haagen-Dazs (everything old is new again!) to be run by the franchisee who owns the Haagen-Dazs at Mall of America.
The addition of these national brands is further evidence of the cache Nordstrom brings to the Minnetonka mall. Nordstrom is set to open at Ridgedale on Oct. 2. A dozen new specialty retailers, including Athleta, Banana Repbulic and Tommy Bahama will follow in October and November, along with renovations to center court. The latest additions continue Ridgedale's streak of landing popular national brands that are not new to the Twin Cities, but will reach an affluent part of the market that has been underserved.
Pottery Barn has three other Twin Cities locations and Williams-Sonoma has four—including stores for both brands at Shoppes at Arbor Lakes in nearby Maple Grove. Brooks Brothers has a store downtown Minneapolis and an outlet in Eagan.
