Attention Tomodachi Family: As of last month, our Rosedale Center store is closed. Our lease was up and, after 15 years at that location, we decided it was time to move on to new things -- details coming soon!

A heartfelt thank you goes out to all of our Rosedale patrons, friends and staff, who have been instrumental in Tomodachi's growth and success. We'll see you soon, and please visit and support our Mall of America location, which is going strong with new products, pop culture collectibles and candy/snacks galore! Oh, and we just started carrying Izzy's Ice Cream! Yum!


We're hiring! Apply now.
