Kisa Boutique Opens 3rd Location at 50th & France

UPDATE: Kisa Boutique has closed its 50th & France location.

Just six months after relocating from Lyn-Lake to Ridgedale—and a few short months after permanently opening a skyway location at RBC Plaza in downtown Minneapolis—Kisa Boutique has opened a third location, at 50th and France. The women’s clothing boutique, run by the husband-and-wife team Caglar and Emily Kisa, specializes in imported Turkish fashions as well as kilim rugs (flat tapestry-woven carpets or rugs produced from the Balkans to Pakistan) and Turkish towels.

With their downtown store taking advantage of foot traffic by female office workers—whose downtown shopping resources are slim—and the Ridgedale store giving them an outlet to the western suburban shopper, the couple set their sites on Edina’s busiest shopping intersection. “We’re going to the people,” explains Emily of the rapid expansion. “We’re trying to expand our reach.” So they started out with a relatively smaller storefront, located within the Edina 5-0 building that’s also home to Bay Street Shoes, Talbots, Fashionologie, and Dana’s.

The new store’s merchandise is similar to that of the other Kisa stores, with one wall dedicated to its recently expanded selection of Turkish towels and robes that can be used as swimsuit cover-ups in new patterns and colors. Jackets with colorful linings and dresses in classic shapes with interesting details—such as a cape-sleeved sheath dress—are a Kisa staple. Prices are excellent for the quality—instead of buying merchandise at U.S. markets like most stores, the Kisas import goods directly from Turkish manufacturers, cutting out the middle man and passing on savers to the customer.

In other 50th and France news, Scout & Molly’s, a nationally franchised women’s clothing, jewelry, and accessories store, is slated to open around May 14 in the former Bon Marché space, and Wayzata-based luxury optical boutique Art of Optiks, opening June 6 in the former Babette space.
