H&M coming to Maplewood Mall

Sunday, March 14th, 2010

Maplewood Mall might finally be able to make Rosedale Center a tad bit jealous: H&M plans to open at Maplewood Mall. An 18,000-square-foot store is under construction on the second level of the mall. It is scheduled to open in the fall. Maplewood is owned by Simon Properties, which also owns Southdale Center where fast fashion emporium H&M opened a two-level store last year.

Shopping with green guru Danny Seo

Monday, June 15th, 2009

IMG_3431 Got a question? Need some help? You could wander around a store forever. But quietly stroll the sales floor with a notebook in hand and managers appear out of thin air. Today's locale: JC Penney at Rosedale Center. My shopping companion: green lifestyle expert Danny Seo, designer of JC Penney's very own Simply Green   home line. There he was, picking up one of his own pillows when a manager with a clipboard surfaced offering to "help us." What she really meant was: who are you and what are you doing that may get me in trouble with corporate? Danny, who is a fixture on the JC Penney website, not to mention the author of best selling books, a magazine columnist and frequent guest on national shows like, oh, Oprah, couldn't have been more cordial, but it was clear he was a little hurt. "I work for JC Penney," he told her, and recited the names and numbers of folks in the corporate office to verify this. "He's decorated for Tobey Maguire!" I offered. The manager retreated. We finished shopping. At least he gets a corporate card, which he used to pay for around $100 of his own merch, which he'll give away on Shop Girls Saturday, June 20.
