Norfolk prepares transportation shuttles for grand opening of IKEA

NORFOLK, VA – The City of Norfolk welcomed IKEA on Friday for the Grand Opening!

Norfolk teamed up with IKEA and the City of Virginia Beach to ensure the public had safe and simple access in and out of the area.

IKEA will run a shuttle every 12 -14 minutes from its overflow parking location at Norfolk Premium Outlets on Wednesday and for a few weekends following the Grand Opening.

To access the shuttle, drive to Norfolk Premium Outlets off of Miller Store Road or Northampton Boulevard and park in the lots next to the Bus Plaza. Then you can catch the shuttle to IKEA.

We rode a shuttle Wednesday and it too about 20 minutes.
