Two children’s stores with a cult-like following opened in Michigan in August. Hanna Andersson, the famous purveyor of striped long johns and other high quality, bright clothes for children opened their doors at Twelve Oaks Mall in Novi. The new location will incorporate Hanna’s brand new store concept and includes local design elements.
An American Girl store also opened at the Twelve Oaks Mall. Described as a temporary pop-up shop, you will be able to browse the signature dolls, books, and accessories through early 2017. The shop will also feature a fun outing option as well – their doll hair salon. Earlier this year American Girl launched a new doll in their BeForever series, named Melody Ellison, a 9 year old girl growing up in Detroit in the 1960s. The doll is meant to teach young girls about the Civil Rights Movement. Both stores are located on the upper level, near Nordstrom.
