Roseville is a city in Ramsey County, Minnesota, just north of Saint Paul and east of Minneapolis. It is one of two Twin Cities suburbs that are adjacent to both Saint Paul and Minneapolis (the other is Lauderdale). The land comprising Falcon Heights, Lauderdale, and southern Roseville was unincorporated until Roseville incorporated in 1948 and Falcon Heights and Lauderdale incorporated in 1949.
Roseville's property taxes are some of the lowest in the Twin Cities metropolitan area, owing in part to the extensive commercially zoned land. Several major shopping centers are in Roseville, including Rosedale Center and the Har Mar Mall. The city's per-capita retail spending is slightly higher than that of Bloomington (home of the Mall of America), and it has the greatest number of restaurants per capita in the area.
The first Target store was built in 1962 in Roseville and replaced in 2005 with a SuperTarget. Roseville was home to the first Barnes & Noble bookstore outside New York City. This location was closed in 2005; the current Barnes & Noble in Roseville is the chain's 2nd store in Roseville. The first McDonald's in the state of Minnesota was built in Roseville in 1957. The Roseville Dairy Queen, also first in the state, is currently on the Preservation Alliance of Minnesota's list of the 10 Most Endangered Historic Places.
The credit scoring and data analytics firm FICO has one of its main Midwest U.S. office locations in Roseville.
