BLOOMINGTON, MN— August 7, 2018
Fashion and lifestyle brand Kendra Scott is announcing today the opening of their first Minnesota store location at Mall of America. The retail space will be located on level 1, South and is expected to open late 2018.
Kendra Scott is known for bold colors, genuine stones and mixed metals in jewelry including necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and rings as well as its innovative and customizable Color Bar™ experience in-store and online. Kendra has created collections of timeless and on-trend pieces that have won over loyal fans, media, and celebrities alike.
“We are thrilled to be opening our first Minnesota store this year and knew there was no better place than retail mecca Mall of America to do so. The expansion into the market marks a new frontier for the brand as we continue to grow and we could not do so without incredible retail partners like Mall of America,” said Designer, CEO, and Philanthropist Kendra Scott.
Along with Fashion, the Kendra Scott brand maintains a focus on Family and Philanthropy. In 2017 alone, the company gave back 4.7 million dollars, over $10 million in in-kind donations, and over 2,000 volunteer hours, and partnered with more than 10,000 philanthropic organizations.
Kendra Scott started her company in 2002 with just $500 dollars and a dream and – over the past sixteen years – has transformed the brand from a small start-up to a global billion-dollar business.
“We are thrilled that Kendra Scott will open their first Minnesota location at Mall of America,” said VP of Real Estate and Leasing Heather Brechbill Swilley. “As we continue to bring first-to-market brands to distinguish our property, we also look for concepts that will resonate with our guests and Kendra Scott is one of them.”
