Last summer, Galleria announced a major expansion of nearly 20,000 square feet of additional retail space that would include as many as a dozen new stores on its northeast end. Today, the high-end Edina shopping center has announced four new tenants: Soft Surroundings, a soft goods retailer of high-end women’s apparel, bedding, and home and beauty products; a new, permanent location for locally owned contemporary women’s boutique Roe Wolfe; a second location for Minnesota-based swim and resort wear boutique Big Island Swim & Surf Company; and a Starbucks cafe and patio (replacing its previous location at the mall).

This will be the first Minnesota location for the St. Louis, Mo.-based Soft Surroundings, which got its start as a mail-order catalog retailer known for its ultra-soft fabrics. Its new 4,043-square-foot store, opening this November, will feature its entire product selection, which includes women’s apparel, luxurious bedding, globally-inspired accessories, and an array of high-quality beauty and home goods.

After a successful run at Galleria in a temporary location, Roe Wolfe will open in the expanded area of the shopping center at the end of 2017. The locally owned retailer, which opened at Galleria this past March after several years in the North Loop, offers an on-trend mix of contemporary women’s apparel, accessories, gifts, and apothecary goods.

The locally-owned Big Island Swim & Surf Company opened near the shores of Lake Minnetonka in Excelsior in 2012, selling a comprehensive mix of swim, beach, and resort wear for the whole family from high-quality boutique brands such as Roxy, Seafolly, Vix, and L* Space.

The news comes a couple months after the announcement of an 18,000-square-foot Design Within Reach company store, opening in September, and CoV restaurant, which is slated to open in October, as well as a new main entrance off 69th Street with a valet station, a concierge desk with free Wi-Fi, and electric car charging stations. Roe Wolfe is still open in its temporary location now through the time it moves into its permanent location, at 3565 Galleria.
