Teton VW to hold ribbon cutting at noon Friday

Teton Volkswagen, south of Idaho Falls
There will be a ribbon cutting at noon Friday at Teton Volkswagen, 3084 Outlet Boulevard, on the west side of Interestate 15 Exit 116 and next door to Queenie Linderman's One16 Sports Bar and Grill.

Light refreshments will be served, and there will be a drawing for a VW Mountain Bike.

Teton Volkswagen is owned by the same company as Teton Toyota. The Outlet Boulevard location is temporary, as the plan is to build a new dealership this year on the east side of the Interstate, next to Teton Toyota.

All this comes at a time when Toyota has retaken the top spot as the world's best-selling auto company, passing General Motors. According to a story on NPR this morning, Volkswagen came in at No. 3.

Here is the link to Teton Volkswagen's Web page: http://www.mytetonvw.com/. I notice Buddy, Teton Toyota's mascot, is on the Teton VW masthead. I was going to volunteer my dachshund, Schatzi, but it's probably all for the best. She's not comfortable with strangers and even more nervous around children.
