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.
