Now Open: Kisa Boutique Skyway Pop-up


Kisa Boutique's new skyway pop-up location at RBC Plaza

While big-name, department store retailers Saks Off Fifth and Neiman Marcus have departed downtown Minneapolis, a new trend appears to be emerging: skyway boutique outposts. MINQ, whose flagship store is located at the Shops at West End, opened a mini version of the store on the skyway level of the IDS Center in October. Less than six months later, Kisa Boutique, which opened its first store in Uptown last year, has opened a temporary location in the newly renovated RBC Plaza skyway (formerly known as Gaviidae Common II).

Kisa Boutique has signed a two-month lease through April for the space while it renovates its Uptown store, which is set to reopen at the end of this month with the addition of menswear. Shop owner Emily Kisa says they’re testing the space and may sign on for a full year if all goes well in the next couple of months.

The merchandise of the downtown pop-up is similar to that of its Uptown store, but tailored to the working woman. Blazers and dresses that go from day to evening mix in with bohemian dresses and tops from Europeans designers that reflect Kisa’s eclectic, globe-trotting aesthetic—which includes its signature crocheted jewelry line, Dokuma, as well as pieces by local jewelry lines Tess & Tricia and Litany Jewelry. Kisa tells me to expect jewelry trunk shows and power-lunch shopping parties to come in the pop-up space, plus a shopping happy hour every day from 5 to 6 p.m. with daily deals and events; follow Kisa Boutique on Facebook or Instagram for details as they emerge.

Now open, RBC Plaza, Suite 289, 60 S 6th St., Mpls., 612-823-5192,
