There’s a new exhibit at Mill City Museum in Minneapolis. It’s called “Thank You for Shopping” and it takes a look at the retail world in both Minneapolis and in Saint Paul. The exhibit is a companion to the book “Thank You For Shopping: The Golden Age of Minnesota Department Stores”. The book is a perfect coffee table book. It includes all sorts of pictures, recipes and menus from some of the dining establishments, too.
The exhibit showcases department store artifacts from the Minnesota Historical Society. Visitors can see the exhibit for free during regular museum hours.
