Hazel & Rose reopens in North Loop
By ERIC BEST : The Journal : August 14, 2018
Hazel & Rose’s new space has all the comforts of home — a kitchen carrying natural skincare products, a bedroom turned into a fitting room and lots of natural light to showcase the boutique’s sustainable fashion.
That’s because co-owners Emma Olson and Bobbi Barron have relocated the previously Northeast Minneapolis-based women’s apparel store to a live-work unit in the North Loop’s new Borealis apartment building.
The two-story walk-up apartment is now a showroom for Hazel & Rose’s clothing, shoes, jewelry, accessories and health and beauty products.
The smaller space fronts 8th Avenue and is across the street from the Star Tribune’s printing facility. Hazel & Rose, now at 117 N. 8th Ave., is open 11 a.m.–7 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m.–5 p.m. Saturday and noon–4 p.m. Sunday.
Hazel & Rose isn’t the only women’s boutique moving across the river.
While Parc owner Thao Nguyen is waiting for work to finish on her new space, the store is hosting a pop-up shop in The Washington at 121 N. Washington Ave. It is open 11 a.m.–6 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and noon–4 p.m. Sunday.
Parc, which had been located on East Hennepin Avenue, is preparing a new location at the former Campbell-Logan Bindery building a few blocks away at 212 N. 2nd St. The 10-year-old store carries independently designed clothing, shoes and jewelry.
