The Fourth is over: what to look forward to? Ah, yes, the luxurification of Mall of America. Shareology popped in the morning of the 6th, and found that changes on the South Side are proceeding at a fast pace. Microsoft update at end of this post; let’s start with bright shiny objects: those crystal chandeliers are much more dangley and beautiful than Shareology anticipated! The marble floors ain’t bad either!
Yep, Shareology does love her some bright, shiny objects….. Hugo Boss is not open quite yet, but they are hiring: (gotta love the door panel switch!)
For those who want an update on when Microsoft arrives at MOA, a clue is When Baby Gap is vacating for its new space? That’s July 15 — we’re only one build away after that….. Since both Baby Gap and Gap Kids are heading down the hall to join their Gap relatives, that Microsoft store is looking fairly large in terms of square footage.
So that sets the stage for the duel to come at MOA between Apple and Microsoft:
So: the luxurification of South Side at MOA is happening a lot faster than Shareology anticipated. You can already walk on marble and have crystals shining in your eyes….and soon, very soon, Microsoft across the hall from Apple! Now there’s a holiday!
