Budget supermarket chain Aldi and activewear retailer Sierra Trading Post will replace the Babies ‘R Us store at the Shops at Lyndale center, Richfield city officials announced.
The store closed in April as part of the bankruptcy of its parent company, Toys ‘R’ Us.
The new 23,000 square feet Aldi store at 900 W. 78th St. will open in the second half of 2019. It will be about three miles away from Aldi store in Richfield on Penn Ave. S.
The Shops at Lyndale location of Sierra Trading Post will be the company’s third location in the Twin Cities. The first opened in Eagan in 2016 and in Woodbury last year. The Richfield store will be about the same size as the other two at 19,000 square feet. The Cheyenne, Wyo.-based off-price retailer sells outdoor equipment, camping and hiking gear, apparel and home accessories. It is owned by TJX, which also includes T.J. Maxx and Marshalls and HomeGoods. Read the full article by the Star Tribune here.
