  • 3M Employee Sales eStore

    Building 222 Employee Store is open with limited hours and will be open every Wednesday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. until further notice.

    When planning to visit the store, 3M retirees and former employees must follow all visitor requirements including pre-authorization and pre-registration, wearing a visitor badge, and being escorted by the authorizing 3M host at all times.

    As of January 2, 2024, reusable electronic badges issued to 3M Center campus visitors will be deactivated, including the electronic retiree photo gold badges. And 3M Retiree Ambassador of Goodwill badges (also known as the ‘Gold Card’) will not allow access to 3M Center campus buildings.
