Twenty minutes Northwest of Minneapolis, you will find the suburban shopping district of Arbor Lakes in Maple Grove, MN.
Formerly a gravel mine according to Wikipedia, Arbor Lakes is now a townsy shopping area full of upscale and locally owned stores. The changes have been a gradual construction project, which started with the building of a Main Street.
On this Main Street, you will find Claddagh Pub: Maple Grove, where you can start your excursion with a pint of Harp Irish Lager and our Jameson Burger with hand-cut onion straws.
After eating, you can head for dessert at Main Street Chocolates or Cold Stone Creamery. Or just take a walk around to explore. The public library and Lifetime Fitness are in Arbor Lakes as well as stores like Nordstrom Rack, Christopher & Banks, and Loft.
Directly East, you can find The Shoppes At Arbor Lakes, which was the second shopping area constructed. In this district, you will national chain stores such as American Eagle and Pottery Barn. Also, check out small, local boutique shops such as Francesca’s Collections for souvenirs and gifts.
A few minutes further to the East is The Fountains At Arbor Lakes. It is twice as large as Shoppes and includes large-scale shopping stores such as Costco and Marshall’s. There is also a Holiday Inn there with a 20,000 foot indoor water park.
Wrap up the day by heading back to Claddagh for one of our daily events. Sunday is All Day Happy Hour, and kids eat free from 11am-10pm. There is also BOGO on Monday nights and Trivia Night on Wednesdays.
It is our ambition to create an exceptional experience every time you visit. See you soon in Maple Grove!
