Minneapolis is home to two iconic retail shopping centers. The first is the Southdale Shopping Center located in Edina, which was the first fully-enclosed shopping mall in the United States. The second is the granddaddy of all shopping malls, The Mall of America located in Bloomington. Of course, the downtown city center has historically been the focal point of major retail chains from historic icons like Dayton's, Donaldson's and Young Quinlan's, to their contemporary replacements like Macy's and Target. The enclosed Skyway system makes downtown shopping convenient and comfortable all year long - from the scorching summers to our legendary frigid winters.
It must be noted that Minneapolis, The City of Lakes, is home to a wealth of specialty shops located throughout the region that reflect the culture of Minnesota, many of which serve as cornerstones to the various 'dales' shopping centers. Minnesotans also pride ourselves on the world-class cuisine to be found no matter where you find yourself in the Minneapolis area. Neighbors Resource is pleased to present some of the best specialty retail shops and restaurants in the southwest region of the Twin Cities area of Minneapolis, Minnesota.
