Get ready, folks! Minnesota is getting a new area code. So here's the scoop: Area code 924 will soon be joining the ranks of the beloved 507 area code, which serves our southern Minnesota stomping grounds. The Minnesota Public Utilities Commission (PUC) gave the green light to this new addition on March 30.
Now, you might be thinking, "Why do we need a new area code?" Well, our population is growing, and our beloved 507 area code is running out of phone numbers faster than a hotdish disappears at a church potluck. Rumor has it that we'll be all tapped out by early 2025.
But fear not, the PUC has come to the rescue with area code 924 to ensure that we have enough digits to go around. It's like a fresh batch of hot, buttered corn on the cob at the State Fair - it's something we never knew we needed, but now we can't imagine life without it.
So, mark your calendars, update your contacts, and get ready for some new digits in town.
