North Face Somerset Mall
By Adrienne Roberts
“The dedicated space will allow us to hold many more styles within these companies than we could in an everyday shop which includes 40 or 50 brands, ” says Nick Rau, manager of retail at Moosejaw. “Fans of North Face and Patagonia should be able to see special, hard-to-find styles seldom noticed in stores.”
Rau says the 4, 000-square-foot area, found at 1441 Woodward Ave., ended up being guaranteed from Bedrock property Services. The shop, which formally starts Friday, will actually sell fleeces, coats, sweatshirts, and backpacks, among other choices.
Moosejaw’s present downtown store, positioned at 1275 Woodward Ave., originally started as a popup store in November 2012. Because of the popularity of the popup store, Rau says the store became permanent in March 2013.
The shops are found in what’s becoming branded by Bedrock property Services yet others since the Woodward Avenue Retail District. Other stores inside district are the John Varvatos store as well as the Somerset Collection CityLoft popup shops.
