First  step rename file  to.  featured-magazine.scss.css;

Hi @khairali 

First you minify the css by online tool and copy the css. create a new file for minifid css and paste the minified css here  then rename the file name in theme.liquid file. 

Thanks

Yep, since Shopify depreciated SCSS, this solution does not work anymore.

You can try solution from this thread:

also, looks like Shopify will support minification out of the box, as per
