Local company agrees to sell Metrodome seats

What would you pay for a seat from the Metrodome?

MPR News reports a Fridley company is getting ready to take orders.

The company, Albrecht Sign Company Inc., said it wants to get the word out now.

KARE 11 reports the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority has not yet finalized the contract or prices, but Albrecht Sign says prices will likely range from $60 to $80 dollars each.

General manager Tony Manning said he has no idea how big the job will be.

“It’s a wild guess right now. I hope fans come out and buy as many as they want," Manning said. "You can buy one seat, you can buy 5,000.”

Manning said the job could involve as many as 30,000 seats and take about 14 working days.

He told MPR non-profit groups might be able to get seats for a lower price, perhaps $40.

Manning said Albrecht Sign will take pre orders on its website and on a Facebook page. He estimates all seats will have to be paid for by Jan. 7. Bulk orders may have to be made and paid for next week.

There are no plans at this point to ship the chairs. Pickup is expected to start Jan. 14.
