Eden Prairie Center shoppers will soon have more options as the mall announces several new tenants, including specialty retailers focused on activewear, video games, and hand-poured soy candles.
According to a press release, the 1.4 million-square-foot retail center is adding Let’s Roar, High Score, and T.S. Home Studio to its retail lineup, joining over 100 shops and restaurants.
“We’re proud to welcome three local entrepreneurs to the strong mix of national and local retailers at Eden Prairie Center,” said Nancy Litwin, the mall’s senior general manager.
Let’s Roar sells men’s and women’s activewear and gold-plated stainless steel jewelry that will not tarnish, making it suitable to wear while working out, according to the press release.
It opened on Aug. 1 and is located on the mall’s upper level in the Kohl’s wing.
Let’s Roar sources its jewelry from Cebu, an island in the Philippines where the store’s owner was born and raised before moving to Minnesota in her youth. The activewear is exclusive to the brand and features the Let’s Roar logo to encourage the wearer to feel more confident in their own skin, the press release states.
Inspired by the owner’s military service, the store will donate 10% of sales to Protect Our Defenders, a charity that supports military sexual assault survivors.
First opened in 2009 by a father-son duo, High Score has relocated to the center’s upper level in the Scheels wing, offering an extensive collection of new and vintage video games, toys, and collectibles.
High Score follows a buy-sell-trade model, allowing customers to bring games, toys, and systems for appraisal in exchange for cash, store credit, or High Score merchandise. High Score will also host in-store tournaments for Super Smash Brothers, Pokémon, and more, and provides disc resurfacing services.
The store opened in the mall on Aug. 4.
T.S. Home Studio
Located on the upper level of the J.C. Penney wing, T.S. Home Studio will sell hand-poured, wood-wick soy candles, wax melts and warmers, room sprays and reed diffusers.
Known for its clean-burning, non-toxic candles, T.S. Home Studio aims to create a relaxing ambiance with its natural scents. The store will also offer classes to those ages 10 and up interested in learning the candle-making process.
In business since 2016, the husband-wife owners of T.S. Home Studio are working on relocating their store from Minnetonka to Eden Prairie Center. A grand opening event is planned at the mall, with giveaways and promotions scheduled for the week of Oct. 1.
In addition, seasonal retailer Spirit Halloween is returning to the mall in mid-August, transforming two connected storefronts on the upper level near the center court into a one-stop shop for Halloween costumes, accessories and decorations.
Earlier this summer, the mall also announced the addition of new dining tenants, including fully-service DIY Japanese BBQ and counter-service ramen, entirely gluten-free fast food, and an Italian coffee kiosk. Riddle’s Jewelry opened in May.
