Office Depot remodel opens up space for Dollar Tree

Office Depot has downsized and remodeled the former OfficeMax space at 3001 Nicollet Ave. S.

Owners of the strip mall are finalizing lease negotiations for a new Dollar Tree location in the vacated space.

Barry Mahaffey of Stonewood Properties said the remodel is “unbelievable.”

“The difference is night and day,” he said. “The new space looks nothing like the old space.”

Office Depot acquired OfficeMax in 2013, according to Reuters.
