Owner Veronica Clark operates her new retail concept with the philosophy that everyone should be able to play dress-up together. And so, that’s exactly what’s happening at her North Loop hot spot. Short for Destination North Loop, the women’s clothing boutique brings several Twin Cities retailers together in one location. The shopping cooperative provides a Soho-esque space — think luxe fashions set against a backdrop of sparse space and brick walls — for other beloved boutiques to set up shop. How can you argue with one-stop local shopping? 219 N. 2nd St., Mpls.; 612-916-7895; dnolo.com
