Want to buy one of Minneapolis' more infamous pieces of retail history?
The "K" sign that adorned the Kmart store on Nicollet and Lake in south Minneapolis is now up for sale, following the store's shutdown and purchase by the City of Minneapolis.
The building was historically unpopular in the city because it bisected Nicollet Avenue at Lake Street, forcing drivers and pedestrians to divert around the store to travel north and south on Nicollet – a particular pain for anyone heading to or from Eat Street.
The building was set to be demolished this year after the city bought Kmart out, but this plan was pushed back two years because the building is now the temporary home of a post office, which follows the destruction of two other post offices in south Minneapolis during the May riots.
The city is now selling the "K" via an auction at GovDeals, with a starting bid of $100.
As of noon Friday, the current high bid was $725 for the sign, which is 9-feet high and around 11-and-a-half-feet wide.
