Kirkland's, a specialty retailer of home decor and specialty seasonal gifts, has opened its newest Twin Cities store at Rosedale Commons in Roseville.
And a Roseville business woman, Julie Overbye Ledy will be playing a special role in the store's grand opening festivities (Ledy is a regular blogger for Roseville Patch. Click on this link to see list of her blogs.)
The Tennessee-based retailer, with more than 300 U.S. stores, is planning a grand opening celebration next weekend: From 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 26, and noon to 6 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 27.
Ledy , a real estate agent and interior designer, will be available for free design consultations from 1 to 4 p.m. both days. She will showcase Kirkland's items and provide design tips, according to Kirkland's.
Customers are encouraged to bring photos of rooms or floor plans of spaces they are decorating for a free, personalized design consultation from Ledy.
Kirkland’s will also be giving away two $50 gift cards and shoppers will receive a free sachet with purchase while supplies last.
The arrival of Kirkland's is the latest of several new retailers taking residence during the last two years at Rosedale Commons, a small strip shopping center just north of Rosedale Center. New tenants include Bed Bath & Beyond, Destination XL and the Xfinity Experience Center. Click on to the following Roseville Patch stories to read about other retailers at Rosedale Commons:
