Everyone throughout the country has holiday traditions that begin to circulate during winter, regardless of religion. The reason for this is due to all the decorations and festive lights flooding streets and shop windows. Some states are famous for their crazy transformations during this time of the year, Minnesotans have some different traditions. Whether it be driving around, looking at holiday lights, or going to a downtown Macy’s store to see their holiday window displays, the holiday season is memorable.

However, the famous Macy’s display is not where it has been for 53 years. Luckily for us, they aren’t disappearing forever. Holiday decorations formerly featured at Macy’s department store in Minneapolis have found a new home in Duluth. Macy’s hosted its final display in 2016 before the company sold its downtown Minneapolis store in 2017.

On Friday, The Dayton’s Project—which is working to revamp the landmark department store space into a mixed-use complex—resurrected the building’s lavish window displays. ”

This year, the Macy’s that moved is being replaced with a Dayton’s. Dayton’s was an American department store chain founded in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1902 by George Draper Dayton. On Friday, The Dayton’s Project—which is working to revamp the landmark department store space into a mixed-use complex—resurrected the building’s lavish window displays. 

They’re back! Continue the Minnesota tradition and swing by The Dayton’s Project to see our holiday window installations…
