With the summer nearly upon us, now is a better time than ever to hit the mall and stay on top of the latest fashion trends. Fashionistas of Minnesota rejoice when they no longer have to wear bulky coats!
Eden Prairie Center boasts an array of stores that specialize in shoes, clothing, jewelry and accessories. The friendly and knowledgeable staff at Buckle, Chico’s, Daily Thread, DSW, Francesca’s, LOFT, Talbots, Tradehome Shoes and other boutiques await to make your shopping experience fun and personal – just like it was always meant to be. And if you look forward to spring because it’s the season of in-store bargains, Kohl’s and JCPenney are both must-visit destinations.
Whether you’re preparing for a romantic evening or a girls’ night out, the estheticians of Brow Studio 7, L.A. Nails, Q Nails and the Salon at JCPenney are all standing by to help your beauty glow its brightest. If you would like to celebrate one of life’s greatest occasions – getting a new piece of jewelry – just give your special someone a gentle nudge while you stroll past Brugen Jewelers, M Jewelers, Queen’s Jewelry and the newly opened Riddle’s Jewelry.
Eden Prairie Center is as much about shopping as it is experiences. No store better exemplifies that spirit than SCHEELS, where you will find all kinds of great summer clothing and sporting goods surrounded by attractions that would look right at place in a carnival. You can spend hours enjoying SCHEELS’ 45-foot Ferris wheel, 16,000-gallon saltwater aquarium, miniature bowling alley, and many other indoor games and exhibits.
The fast-paced fun doesn’t stop at SCHEELS. Sandbox VR treats guests to full-body virtual reality adventures! With motion trackers on your head, wrists and ankles, you can move just as freely in Sandbox VR’s fantasy worlds as you can in real life. If you would rather challenge your friends to an exhilarating Nerf battle, make Tactical Urban Combat your personal proving ground.
Has it been far too long since you saw a summer blockbuster the way it is meant to be seen? The mall features Minnesota’s only PRIME at AMC, where you sit back and relax in a plush, spacious recliner with built-in film-responsive subwoofers. You’ll feel like you’re swinging right alongside Spider-Man.
Eden Prairie Center’s food court always provides a cool and convenient retreat during the summer. Chatime, Teddy B’s Popcorn, Dairy Queen and Potbelly all serve perfect treats to enjoy while you’re soaking in that beautiful mall air conditioning. But when you’re in the mood for something a touch more intimate, just ask for a table at Crave, where they serve both traditional American fare and sushi that’s fit for a table in any five-star Japanese restaurant. Feeling more Chicago than Shinjuku? For those occasions, there’s Wildfire, which brings the Windy City’s best steaks, chops and seafood to our own equally important city.
Eden Prairie Center schedules dozens of exciting special events every year, including big sales, live entertainment, family photo opportunities and fundraisers. Visit edenprairiecenter.com to see what’s coming up and plan your next visit. This summer, it’s all at the mall!
