KNOXVILLE, Tenn., Nov. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Altar'd State, a rapidly growing women's fashion brand with more than 70 boutiques throughout the Midwest, South, Mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions, has opened at Mall of America in Bloomington, MN. This will mark the first location in the Minneapolis metropolitan area for the growing retail brand. Altar'd State's popularity is growing not only for its inspiring boutique-style shopping experience and on-trend women's fashion and accessories, but also for its emphasis on giving back to local and global organizations. Through its Give Back and Mission Monday initiatives, Altar'd State donates a portion of all net proceeds to global and local non-profit organizations. "The give-back mission isn't just what we do, it's who we are," comments Aaron Walters, Chairman and CEO of Altar'd State. "From the very beginning, our mission has been to help the less fortunate in and around the communities where we have Altar'd State boutiques. This commitment also applies to the Minneapolis area. We want Mall of America shoppers to feel good about their purchases by knowing they are helping those in need in their community and on a global scale." As part of Altar'd State's commitment to give back to the greater Minneapolis area, Altar'd State is planning a series of activities in partnership with local companies and organizations, including a partnership with local coffee shops to provide pay-it-forward hot beverages for paying guests. During the grand opening, Altar'd State will also host a volunteer registration table with HandsOn Twin Cities to encourage shoppers to sign up for a variety of community volunteer events and activities.
