Shop and say goodbye: The Minneapolis Macy's closes this weekend

The store is pretty picked over – but if you find something you like, it'll probably be pretty cheap.

As of 6 p.m. Sunday, the downtown Minneapolis Macy's store will be no more.

The landmark property at 700 Nicollet Mall will still stand. But the department store will only remain open through the weekend. It's already mostly sold out.

According to KARE 11, the first floor is pretty much empty. There's nothing left of the makeup counters or shoe department.

But if you manage to find something you like, it'll probably be super cheap. Photos posted to Twitter show signs saying everything is 80-90 percent off.

What's next?

Well, the building has been sold for $59 million to 601W Companies, a New York real estate investment firm. It's planning a “major mixed-use redevelopment” for the building.

The firm is expected to invest “substantial capital to repurpose the building,” according to Macy’s chief stores officer Jeff Kantor. Its vision will include “creative office space” on the upper floors of the building and retail spaces on the street and skywalk levels.

The historic location opened as a Dayton’s store in 1902 and expanded several times until 1945. It was renamed as Marshall Field’s in 2001, before it was changed to Macy’s in September 2006.
