Over the years, Martin Patrick 3 has established itself as an internationally recognized authority in the world of men’s style, home furnishings and interior design services in Minneapolis and beyond. And although the coronavirus outbreak has shifted the way the retail and fashion industries function, MP3 remains dedicated to providing exceptional, one-of-a-kind experiences for every customer who walks into the 22,000-square-foot space.
“Our goal since the very start of the pandemic has been to stay relevant and always inspirational,” explains CEO Dana Swindler. “It’s why we opened our women’s boutique and are investing more in our home, gift and lifestyle departments. Through everything that has happened this past year, Martin Patrick 3 has and will continue to proudly introduce new brands, highlight local talent, and offer the best retail and customer experiences.”
A sign of continued growth, the North Loop destination has brought on local retail maven Ashley Kilcher as its women’s sales lead. “I am looking forward to supporting MP3’s expansion with my 10-year background of owning my own women’s boutique, Roe Wolfe,” she says. “Brick-and-mortar retail has always been my passion, and I’m so excited to bring the women’s wear to the next level.”
MP3 is also gearing up to reintroduce its stellar public-facing programming and events. “We’re super excited to announce our first major women’s event happening on May 20, which will include a fashion show, Champagne and lots of other great surprises,” comments Director of Buying and Planning Carrie Fryman. “And for Father’s Day, we are planning some experiential installations, partnering with local breweries and distilleries, and hosting some great giveaways.”
As things continue to head in the direction of a new normal, Martin Patrick 3’s unshakeable commitment to providing Minneapolis with its impeccable signature service is an exciting way to kick off the warm seasons ahead. Spring and summer fashion is alive and well at Martin Patrick 3, and the boutique is ready to refresh our wardrobes, homes and lifestyles.
