Per The Star Tribune, the Prince Shop opened at MSP in June 2019 and “…is the first of its kind.” The outlet noted, “It offers an expanded line of merchandise beyond the gift shop at Paisley Park, which had been the only brick-and-mortar site with a full offering of official Prince merchandise.”
For those visiting MSP in the future, the Prince Shop is in the mall area inside Terminal 1. Fans can also purchase tour tickets to Paisley Park at the Prince Shop.
