HistoryEdit

 
The 2005 expansion added several restaurants and a large movie theater.

Built in 1969, it is the third of the "dale" shopping centers built by the Dayton-Hudson Corporation. Southdale Center (1956), in Edina, Minnesota was the first. This was followed by Brookdale Center (1962) in Brooklyn Center, and later by Ridgedale Center (1974) in Minnetonka.[3]

Originally, Rosedale was anchored by Dayton's and Donaldson's department stores. A JCPenney was added, as part of a new North Wing, in 1976; a Montgomery Ward also joined in the 1970s. The mall underwent a major renovation that was completed in 1992. A new Dayton's was added as well (the old Dayton's was rebuilt as new retail spaces). Two parking garages were constructed as well.

The vacant east anchor (originally a Donaldson's, then a Carson Pirie Scott and Mervyn's) was demolished in 2005. Developers built a new, open-air, lifestyle wing, anchored by an AMC theater. This expansion, officially known as the Plaza at Rosedale Center, was dedicated in November 2006.[2] The 14-screen AMC was completed the next month.

In 2015, the Rosedale Center announced a 140,000 square foot expansion project that opened on October 10, 2018. It includes a Von Maur department store. The project removed 369 current parking spaces, but also built a parking deck to add 450 spaces, a net gain of 81 parking spaces.[4]

Despite a recent remodel from the expansion, Bon-Ton announced on April 17, 2018 that they will be closing doors and begin liquidating all Herberger's stores and all 200+ locations after two liquidators, Great American Group and Tiger Capital Group, won an auction for the company. This will include all Herberger's stores as well as the Rosedale location. According to national retail reporter Mitch Nolen, stores will close within 10 to 12 weeks. Herberger's closed for the final time on August 30, 2018.[5][6]

ShoppingEdit

Following the success of their stores in New York, the Macy's at Rosedale Center became their first store in Minnesota to have 24-hour shopping during the 2009 Christmas season.[7]
