A new store is making its debut in Minnesota and will be arriving in time for all of our summer fun on the lakes.  Which is a really good thing because this place is THE home for all the swim gear you'll need.

For The First-Time Ever, A Popular Store Is Bringing Its Summer Fun to Minnesota

When someone thinks of Minnesota, they either think of people living in igloos and snow all-year-round (which is one of the many myths of our state!) or they know about the massive building full of over 520 stores called the Mall of America.  If shopping is what someone decides to check out when they hang out in the Land of 10,000 Lakes, there is a new store that is opening soon at the MOA that people are going to love!

Chubbies Opening Soon at the Mall of America in Minnesota

Coming soon to Level 1, South at the Mall of America in Minnesota is a store that has everything you need to enjoy a day at the lake!  Or, if you are like me and don't want fish to touch your feet, you just lay on the boat and soak up the sun. 

Chubbies, which is known in Texas, Vegas, Georgia, Florida, and South Carolina, is packing up the trucks and making a move North.

Here's What You'll Find at the New Chubbies Store Coming to Minnesota

According to the press release that the Mall of America sent out, Chubbies is a "lifestyle apparel brand best known for their short shorts and swim trunks".  You'll find a great variety of clothing for men as well as boys and toddler items that provide an amazing range of patterns, colors, and sizes for all shoppers.  If you want something neutral - they'll have it.  If you want something bold and bright - that will be on the racks waiting for you as well.

“Our customer base continues to grow across the Midwest, and this is our opportunity to meet them where they're at. We aim to deliver an environment where customers can explore, interact, and love our products while having a memorable experience.”

- Kent Collins, Vice President of Chubbies Owned Retail

When Is Chubbies Planning To Open at the Mall of America?

You may get a few trips to the pool and lake in before opening day for Chubbies, but don't let that stop you from checking out the new place once it does open.  Right now, the plan is for Chubbies to open late summer of 2024.

Get a sneak peek at what you'll find at the new Chubbies store at the Mall of America at their website here.
