Few shopping centres acquire specialized storefronts in the United States other than the Mall of America. This was once again proven with the announcement that the Mars Retail Group will launch an M&M Retail Store, marking their 5th location worldwide. Additional areas include Shanghai, Las Vegas, New York and London. However, a further four locations will open worldwide. Those will include Orlando, Germany, Berlin and Florida.
That’ll bring the total number to nine retail locations, with the Mall of America storefront anticipated to be more than 24,000-square-feet. It’ll be located in the East Marker Neighbourhood in MOA and will open Q4 2020. There’ll be two levels available for consumers to explore, with the Mars Retail Group confirming that this location will honour the Midwestern & Minnesota cultures. These announcements follow after the Mars Retail Group confirmed they’d expand the M&M brand throughout 2020.
The Director of Global Retail for the Mars Group confirmed this storefront on February 1st. He noted that the Mall of America is the perfect location to expand their immersive experiences for consumers, making them a natural partner to fully realize their strategic vision. Maintaining sites in all other jurisdictions in America, entering the Minnesota/Midwestern environment will cover all four corners of the United States. Individuals that cannot wait the potential eleven months for the grand opening can visit the NYC or Las Vegas location today.
New Hotels Opens by Mall of America
Another significant announcement was made regarding the Mall of America. Baywood Hotels confirmed they’d be launching their latest hotel under the Home2 Suites brand. Operated by the Hilton Corporation, this new location will be adjacent to the shopping centre and require less than five months of travelling time to enter various facilities. Those wanting to rent from this hotel chain will experience enhanced amenities, communal areas, and modern suites. There’ll also be an indoor pool, 24-hour fitness centre and outdoor fire pit. Hilton Corp confirmed that this location would also support specialized lobbies and exclusive dining options.
The Home2 Suites – Mall of America location, will be supported with four stories. It’ll be operated and owned under the Baywood Hotels Company, confirming that the Hilton Corporation and Baywood have begun an exclusive partnership. There’ll be 182 rooms available and has plans to gain Metro Blue Line access, which would make travelling to the Mall of America less than two minutes. Those wanting to stay with this hotel chain can start booking by February 11th.
