A sign posted Thursday at the entrance to the Williams-Sonoma store at Mall of America reads: “Thank you. We will be closing this location. We apologize for any inconvenience and invite you to visit or call us at our nearby location.” The only one listed is Galleria in Edina. But Williams-Sonoma also has stores at Rosedale Center and new location at Ridgedale Center in Minnetonka.
Mall of America confirmed the closing, and shook it off. “Throughout 2016, we opened more than 20 new retailers, restaurants and attractions – majority of which were first to market concepts,” says spokeswoman Sarah Schmidt. “That momentum will carry into 2017.”
No information on a closing date—a manager at Williams-Sonoma MOA said the company has instructed staff not to comment on the news…despite the sign posted in front of the store.
