Uber Changes

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

Uber Baby has closed its boutique at Shops at West End in St. Louis Park. But Uber Outlet will reopen this Thursday with baby, toddler and kids apparel (up to size 10) plus shoes, diaper bags, baby accessories and gifts – all up to 80 percent off retail. Starting this week, the outlet will resume regular hours: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday-Saturday. Owners Lynne and Dan Gonsior plan to return to their roots, focusing on baby and children’s merchandise at the outlet. (You might see some maternity apparel down the road.) Meanwhile, Lynne is already working on the next chapter: Uber Baby Lifestyles, a full line of baby apparel and accessories launching Spring 2012.

Patina Re-Opening Plans

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

A re-opening is finally within sight for Patina, which lost its south Minneapolis store to a devastating fire more than a year ago. Though it looks like little more than the foundation has been laid at 50th & Bryant, co-owner Christine Ward is targeting an August opening. Unfortunately, Patina’s Shoppe Local will not return as a separate store, but you will find many of the Minnesota brands within the main store, along with tons of new product and a re-imagined layout. If there’s a retailer capable of a smart refresh, it’s Patina. | Mpls.St.Paul Magazine © 2008 MSP Communications, Inc. All rights reserved
