During these unusual times, we wanted to remind everyone about the quality of small businesses in the North Loop of Minneapolis. These businesses offer a diverse collection of wares and combine to make the North Loop one of the most pleasant areas in Minnesota to shop. A Saturday spent window shopping in this area will put you in front of some of the most interesting, eclectic, and beautiful products you are ever likely to see.
