A group of employees working at a shuttered Target store in Canada commemorated the closure with a swan song.

Liam McDonald is the singer for the group, who is seen with the group moving throughout the store. The performance of "Closing Time" by Semisonic is done in one take.

According to the video, the store had been open since March 2013 and closes in May.

Target announced earlier this year it would close its 133 stores in Canada, which saw lackluster sales that cost the company about $2 billion, according to Bloomberg News.

The original Facebook message featuring the video was posted April 12.
