This post is so very "if you build it, they will come": Mall of America just announced a passel of new designer stores opening in its recently renovated, gleaming white South Avenue.
And they're some goodies! The two I'm most excited about are Armani A/X, which will open this summer, and Michael Kors, which will open for fall (I'm hoping in time for fall fashion preview...) Michael Kors will offer his whole range--Michael Kors, KORS Michael Kors, and MICHAEL Michael Kors. That's a lot of Michael Kors.
Also on the lineup: Stuart Weitzman, Naartjie Kids, and the retro-inspired Bettie Page. Desigual and Superdry also open on the first floor. Merrell Shoes and See's Candies (the first year-round shop in Minnesota) have North addresses, but are also opening soon.
This news certainly must have bolstered the Mall's commitment to renovation—East Broadway gets the star treatment next. I can't wait to see what follows! I'll keep you updated as I get peeks into the shops.
