Now You Can Buy A Piece Of Minneapolis, Minnesota History When You Bid On The K From The City’s Infamous Kmart

One of Minneapolis’s biggest annoyances comes in the form of a Kmart store. For decades, this store has blocked the intersection of Lake Street and Nicollet Avenue, forcing traffic to detour around it. But in 2020, the city of Minneapolis finally bought out the lease to the Kmart. Now as the city closes down the infamous roadblock, you can purchase a piece of Minneapolis history, in the form of an 11-foot-tall letter K. Interested? Read on below.
