retail news in context, analysis with attitude

In Minnesota, the Star Tribune reports that the Mayo Clinic plans to open a facility in the Mall of America “amid the roller coasters, restaurants and retailers.”

"The Mall of America provides a tremendous opportunity to provide a gateway to services we provide and a platform for innovation," Dr. Glenn Forbes, CEO of Mayo Clinic Rochester, tells the paper, adding: "It's not our intention to replicate what we're doing in Rochester."

It has not been decided what services will be offered, according to the story, nor when it will open.
