More pizza, please


Giordano’s opened their second MN store yesterday, this one in Richfield at Southdale Square. It is 5,000 square feet, includes 180 seats with patio, and offers a full bar with local beers.  Their first location opened in Uptown last summer.







And here’s the rest of the story . . .

If you have shopped the GoHome store in Uptown, you have a connection with Prince. The Business Journal is reminding us that back in the early 90’s, this space used to be the New Power Generation retail shop owned by the late singer, and the current shopkeepers kept the purple door as an homage to him. Prince had three New Power Generation locations – Minneapolis, Los Angeles and London – and sold Prince-related merchandise, souvenirs and movies. GoHome moved into the space in 1996. Most interesting is that Prince had a phone inside the store that would play unreleased songs for customers to pick up and listen.
