Amid a flurry of local boutique openings (in case you’ve fallen behind on your reading: Belle Reve, OPM, Pursecution, Eco-tique), there are some new chains to shop as well. Canadian-based Garage is now open at Mall of America (first floor, North side) featuring trendy fashions for teen girls (stop by from 1 to 7 p.m. on Oct. 18 for a fashion show, celeb makeovers, music and prizes). And on France Avenue in Edina where the Centennial Lakes theaters used to stand, West Elm is scheduled to open Thursday, Oct. 9 and the Container Store will follow on Saturday, Oct. 11. Check Sales/Specials for details on the Container Store’s opening festivities.
