Since opening in 1953, Grethen House hasn’t lost its touch, despite being one of the Twin Cities’ longest-standing boutiques. The family-owned store has stayed fresh by continually adding new contemporary lines, such as Rick Owens and Étoile Isabel Marant, into its selection anchored by established fashion houses such as Comme des Garçons and Maison Martin Margiela. In 2014, it launched an e-commerce site as well as a second outpost in the North Loop. 4930 France Av. S., Edina, 952-926-8725; 212 3rd Av. N. #109, Mpls., 612-339-5702;
