West End finally snags a store

August 6th, 2009
by Allison Kaplan

Anthropologie has signed on to open a 7,000-square-foot store at the Shops of West End, currently under construction at the southwest corner of I-394 and Highway 100 in St. Louis Park. Finally. We've known for a while that the development, scheduled to open in September, will include a movie theater, Crave restaurant, Noodles & Co. and a grocery store (the Rainbow sign is up). But despite efforts over the past year to draw a mix of local boutiques and better chains not in the market, the only retailer on the official list has been Verizon. Maybe that's why the developers stopped returning my calls. Anthropologie loves the Twin Cities – 50th & France customers especially have helped their stock tremendously. Here's hoping they attract some stylish neighbors in SLP…

    Now, now Ali, the only reason we have been quiet on naming tenants is because the big bad Mall guys keep trying to find out who we have and to see if they can they change their minds. We plan on announcing a more detailed list of the fashion boutiques and restaurants that we have signed on to the project in about two more weeks as we sign the additional Leases we are working on now to add to the others already signed. As promised, I give my word that no none will have the info before Ali’s will. Best, Mark Fallon, The West End

    I have heard a few rumors about who is going to be new tenants in the West End, needless to say they will be a few local ones that I think you will be rather happy to see!!

    Ugh….more on the west side of the cities. I so need to become a west side girl. When are us eastenders going to get more?
