IKEA Charlotte Ribbon Cutting Ceremony Took a Wrong Turn
On Monday, IKEA Charlotte held yet another ceremony leading to the Grand Opening of IKEA Charlotte, the first IKEA in the Carolinas. This ceremony was to open the temporary entrance to IKEA which would allow drivers to turn right from University City Boulevard to North Tyron Street. An actual intersection will be built in the future during phase two of the traffic reengineering.
Unfortunately, noone told the tractor trailer driver that the road wasn’t open quite yet before he smashed through the ribbon. Noone was hurt.
I wonder…did they actually CUT the ribbon after that? Or did they pack up their scissors and go home?
