Edina and Southdale Shopping Center welcomed a big new neighbor this week with the addition of a new Herberger’s department store at the mall. Herberger’s has settled into 135,000 square feet that was formerly occupied by Mervyn’s California. The Mervyn’s space had been vacant for over seven years, so Herberger’s is a very welcome addition to Southdale – and to the community.
That’s Mayor Jim Hovland at the podium giving a short welcome to a line of over a 1,000 excited shoppers waiting to get into the new store at 8:45 am on a Wednesday morning. It was a nice ceremony and a solid step forward for the mall.
