Barwaqo African International Mall

Basim Sabri, owns the building that houses Suuqa Karmel, began the mall to incubate small Somali retail business as a way to bring success to a community where over 80% of the population is found in the poorest areas of Minneapolis.

Suuqa Karmel
2944 Pillsbury Ave. S
Minneapolis, MN, 55408

With over 22,000 Somalis in Minnesota, it is not surprising that the continent's first Somali mall, a stones throw from Lake Street, bustles with activity as people browse clothing stores and perfume shops, pick up dry cleaning, sip tea, and use the Internet cafe. Karmel Square is a microcosm of Somalia's rich cultural traditions- Somali snacks can be purchased, as well as prayer rugs- but most importantly, the mall has become a meeting place for the transplanted Somali community. Basim Sabri, owns the building that houses Suuqa Karmel, began the mall to incubate small Somali retail business as a way to bring success to a community where over 80% of the population is found in the poorest areas of Minneapolis.
