The new store, situated on mall’s first floor outside of Nordstrom, will showcase the Lauers’ exclusive oh baby! brand line—apparel and accessories locally designed by Mary herself and manufactured in the company’s Northeast Minneapolis warehouse. The Lauers also distribute their oh baby! products to third-party stores and boutiques across the globe.
