Timberland to open in Minneapolis

Stratham, N.H. -- Timberland announced it will open a store in the Calhoun Square shopping district of Minneapolis on Nov. 18.

Similar to Timberland stores around the world, the new 2,000 sq. ft. space is designed to reflect the company's long-standing commitment to sustainability, and was built with the environment in mind. Build-out features include the use of reclaimed wood and industrial machinery (used for table bases); "Ecotech" recycled stoneware floor tiles; FSC certified woods; reduced-wattage LED lighting; Energy Star-eligible equipment and appliances; low volatile organic compound (VOC) paints; and water-conserving plumbing fixtures.

The space also features a custom-designed mural themed around the Great Lakes.

"As a brand rooted in the outdoors, extending our presence in Minnesota is a natural fit," said John Pazzani, VP direct to consumer, Timberland. "Minneapolis is one of this country's great cities and much like New England, locals are encouraged to explore the outdoors, even in the frigid, winter months.”

Within the past year, Timberland has opened new retail locations in New York City, San Francisco, Boston and Chicago.
