Get ready to fall for The Bridges

The delivery trucks are rolling in daily, filled with awesomeness for the upcoming fall season. We love the fall décor, the fall flavors and especially the fall fashions at The Bridges. We are excited for this change of seasons and all the traditions that go with it—but like the school kids, we’re still not quite ready to say good-bye to summer.

The Bridges Dog Days of Summer continues every Saturday through the end of the month. Bring your dogs to all the dog-friendly stores and patios at The Bridges and spend the day with your furry best friend. We’ve had a lot of fun with this and you can bet The Bridges will be “going to the dogs” more often. 

Nothing says summer like a farmer’s market, and our Cherry Rock Farmer’s Market has some of the season’s best produce available every Thursday from 2 pm-6 pm in the Bridges parking lot between Gunderson’s and Bracco. If you haven’t had a fresh Cherry Rock Farm’s tomato, you are truly missing out.

With convenient access to the Sioux Falls bike trail system, The Bridges has become a popular spot for bikers who love Flyboy Donuts, Oh My Cupcakes, a little caffeinated energy from Scooter’s Coffee or some beverages at Starz and Bracco. The Bridges has installed several bike racks, so bike on over and enjoy all we have to offer.

We all know August is the month for back-to-school, and some of our locations are more than ready. You’ll find a great selection of unique backpacks at Kidtopia as well as educational supplies, toys and games. Kidtopia celebrates 10 years at The Bridges and will be having a big anniversary party on September 9th—stay tuned for details! Mathnasium is also gearing up for another school year and are here to help your students better learn and excel at all levels of math.

This month we welcome our new friends at Club Pilates as they open their doors with a new Pilates studio equipped with EXO chairs, springboards, TRX, ladder barrel, barre, mats, balls and weights. The studio will be located just two doors down from Scooter’s coffee next to Mathnasium.

We are also looking forward to opening Dakota Seafood this fall in the former Cleaver’s Market location. Construction continues on this space as we prepare for the arrival of fresh, amazing seafood. We will keep you posted on the exact opening date—our mouths are already watering.

As always, thank you for making The Bridges a favorite regional destination. Enjoy the rest of your summer!

Hello Spring!

Spring is here and that means fresh new things at The Bridges, from colorful wardrobes to lighter menus to a fresh re-branded website! We are very excited to launch our new user-friendly website, which includes our new updated logo and some fun new features—like this blog, for instance! We hope you like it and would love to hear your feedback. Check in every month for a timely topic, updated Bridges news and some of our favorite finds.

Spring is also the beginning of special celebrations, like Mother’s Day, graduations, weddings and showers. The best gifts always come from The Bridges, thanks to locally owned boutiques that go out of their way to find unique items that you can’t get just anywhere. If you’re looking for ideas, consider custom framing, custom jewelry, customized skin and hair care, a personalized shopping experience, custom decorating, custom cupcakes or donuts...the key word here is “custom” because The Bridges really does cater to an individual experience.

Finally, a little news. J.Ella Boutique has moved into a new location at The Bridges and is loving the brighter, more visible storefront in our south building. Our friends at Bridges Chiropractic are expanding into the old J.Ella Boutique location, providing Dr. Schroeder and his staff with double the space and a better client experience. We are sad to say good-bye to Cleaver’s Market as they move away from their popular brick-and-mortar location on the corner to specialize in Cleaver’s Catering. We wish them the best of luck! We have several new tenants getting ready to sign on the dotted line and we are super excited to welcome them…you’ll hear all about it in next month’s blog.

Have an amazing spring and don’t forget to like our Facebook page for all the latest updates and your chance to win during any of our many fun promotions!
