IKEA Store Opens In Draper, Reroutes Traffic

A big IKEA Scandinavian-style furniture store opened today in Draper, attracting a huge crowd. Some people actually camped out at the store to get a good position in the line because early comers received free gifts.

Big crowds are common at IKEA grand openings. The city of Draper prepared in advance for the event, and has rerouted traffic for the first six days of the store's opening.

Through Memorial Day, customers will only have one way in and out of the store, from the I-15 Bangerter Highway exit to 200 West. Other freeway exits and surface streets will be off-limits for IKEA customers.

Draper will devote 38 police officers to the traffic enforcement, said Draper Police Sgt. Scott Peck.
