Minnetonka is home to Ridgedale Mall, a large indoor retail shopping center surrounded by additional strip malls, all clustered in the I-394/Plymouth Road corridor. Additional large retail clusters are located in other parts of the city.

One of the city’s fastest-growing criminal concerns is the increase in retail and identity theft. A specialized group of investigators located at a Ridgedale Mall substation work closely with retail security officers as well as responding to complex cases at the request of the patrol or investigative division.
