After three years in Maple Grove, bluebird boutique has decided not to renew its lease at Shops at Arbor Lakes. Turns out, bluebird’s suburban faithfuls are willing to drive to 50th & France, where the main store is based. Bluebird is extending its Edina hours until 7 p.m. on Thursday nights; 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mon.-Sat. and Noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday. When you can’t get there in person, you can shop bluebird online. The contemporary fashion boutique has been dabbling in online sales, but now plans to make the website a priority, adding new items daily, along with a personalized experience and styling advice.
Most current season merchandise at the Arbor Lakes store will be transferred to the website. Past season goods are now discounted as much as 90 percent. Further markdowns will be taken at Arbor Lakes on Oct. 24. The last day to shop the Arbor Lakes store is Oct. 31.
