Dozens of businesses are expecting to leave downtown Minneapolis.
A new survey by the Downtown Council shows 45 business owners say they are considering leaving downtown – citing the lack of people working or socializing downtown – and the idea that the police department could be dismantled.
Though they won’t say which businesses are considering pulling out of downtown, the council says one of the businesses employs 600 people.
That could mean a lot of empty spaces.
On the up side, I suppose “moving” implies some intent to survive.
Wonder how many downtown businesses have closed for good without making it onto any surveys?
