November 7, 2018, Wednesday - 2025 Plan Quarterly Forum | The Future of Downtown Retail

Time: 4:15PM – 6:30PM

Location: The Dayton's Project, 700 Nicollet Mall

2025 plan quarterly forum | the future of downtown retail

Downtown Minneapolis' retail scene continues to evolve, not only due to the changing needs of our downtown community but also due to national trends within the industry. Department stores of the past are less prevalent as smaller, boutique footprints. Downtown itself has seen incredible retail growth and prosperity in neighborhoods like the North Loop, and it is currently working to revitalize the retail core along Nicollet. What is next for the downtown retail community? The mpls downtown council's 2025 plan quarterly forum focused on "the future of retail" will dive into this topic with a distinguished panel of individuals who know downtown's retail past well and are helping shape its future.
