After testing the retail waters in Linden Hills, local women’s boutique Poppy is ready to dive in. Poppy, known for everyday dresses and colorful knits, will take over Twiggs Home & Garden, which recently announced plans to close at the corner of 43rd and Upton after a dozen years. A sale is on now.
Poppy, based in St. Paul, has been renting the back room of Twiggs since last spring. “I’m super excited for that big, beautiful spot,” Poppy proprietress Jill Henderson says. She's bringing another St. Paul retailer along for the ride: SHU Global Footwear will offer its modern assortment of comfortable shoes within the new Poppy.
Poppy will be closed for renovations Feb. 11 to March 24. A grand opening in Linden Hills is planned for March 25.
