Popular Shoe, Clothing Store Coming soon
Work is underway to transform the retail space between D.NOLO and Pacifier into a new store for Allbirds, the popular international shoe and clothing chain. With its roots in New Zealand, the company has stores in major cities around the globe, including 12 in the U.S. Currently, the closest to the Twin Cities is in Chicago.
The new store will occupy the space where Russell + Hazel used to be, in the historic former glass factory at the corner of 3rd Avenue North and 2nd Street North.
According to The Development Tracker website, the store is slated to open in the spring. You can read their article here.
