Eagan businesses mull impact of Vikings training camp

Posted: Updated:

EAGAN, Minn. (AP) - Eagan businesses are working to assess the economic impact of being the new home of the Minnesota Vikings' training camp.

KARE-TV reports that some Eagan businesses have found that the number of visitors is less than expected.

Samantha Brown is the sales manager at Union 32 Craft House. She says the business has seen spurts of people in the area but hasn't experienced any large crowds.

The Dakota County Regional Chamber of Commerce says details of the camp's economic impact will become clearer later on.

The Viking Lakes Development next to the team's facility is still just beginning. The space will eventually hold 3 million square feet of corporate offices, medical space, retail and multi-family housing.
