Ikea Mania: Live from the Grand Opening

New, 26 comments

Team Racked is on hand at the Ikea Opening Ceremony on Beard Street in Red Hook this morning. As of 8:10 Borough President Marty Markowitz had rolled in, and as of 8:15 a lot of people in yellow shirts were there performing. Full photo gallery coverage at Racked. The 346,000 square foot store officially opens at 9AM with a ceremonial log sawing.

UDPATE: At about 8:35 AM there are probably 500 people in line and the scene is "a cross between a political rally, a big-top circus and some sort of fanatical cult gathering."
