Grethen House North Loop
Like an empty nester shedding suburban trappings to rediscover city living, 25-year-old Edina retailer Grethen House is finding its footing in the North Loop.
Taking a cue from some of its new, urban neighbors, the North Loop Grethen House is white and spare, with simple rods and shelves for display. It’s an ideal setting for the fashion-forward pieces and designer labels that always seemed a surprise at Mary Brindley’s homier 50th & France flagship. In the North Loop, her son and daughter-in-law, Tad and Maggie Brindley, are focusing on Grethen House’s more modern, slightly lower-priced brands, and also experimenting with new lines to keep us ahead of the trends.
