OLD TOWN LANSING—In two stops, ribbon cutting ceremonies welcomed in three Old Town businesses on February 28, 2014. The ceremonies
The businesses, Four Blank & Ten Design Group, Leopold Bloom & Co., and Chierie International Market, had all been open for business before the ceremony. Louise Gradwohl, director of the Old Town Commercial Association, said there were multiple factors that postponed the ribbon cuttings, including finding someone to actually cut the ribbons. “It is sometimes hard to get a ribbon cutting with the mayor,” Gradwohl said. Originally Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero was scheduled to attend; however he could not.
