Rosedale Center, commonly known just as Rosedale, is a shopping center in Roseville, Minnesota. The mall is considered a regional powerhouse as a shopping destination; surrounded by suburbs and close to major highways, it serves a trade area population almost 2 million people, and boasts 12 million visitors a year.[1][2]


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. Tenants included Chipotle, California Pizza Kitchen, Granite City, Ann Taylor Loft and Williams-Sonoma.[2] The 14-screen, AMC cinema was completed the next month. The cinema did not have indoor ticket lines at first. After customer complaints about the cold, AMC rebuilt so that the ticket counters were indoors.



On February 20, 2010, a massive brawl involving several dozen teens occurred inside the shopping center. One teen was stabbed in the battle royal, and another was hospitalized. The mall was shut down during the weekend chaos as police investigated the incident. Mall employees have reported increasing groups of young people gathering in Rosedale Center, ever since the expansion in 2006 that saw the opening of a new theater and restaurants. Options such as curfews for children, and accompaniment by adults have been considered by the mall's management, but as of 2010, no rules have yet been enforced.[4][5]


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.[6]
