Minneapolis (AP) — A company has started tearing out the bright-blue stadium seats from the now-closed Metrodome.

Albrecht Sign Co. of Fridley is offering the seats for sale.

The company is selling the seats to nonprofit groups and community organizations at $40 a seat. General seats are available at $60 per seat plus tax, and anyone who wants a specific seat will be charged $80 per seat plus tax.

So far, more than 3,000 seats have been sold to individuals and more than 900 have been bought by nonprofit groups.

Single seats through whole rows can be purchased. Seats must be picked up before Jan. 17 at the Metrodome.

The Minnesota Vikings played their final game at the downtown Minneapolis stadium on Sunday.
