GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Greensboro will celebrate the $2.2 million renovation of the former Canada Dry Bottling Plant with an open house and ribbon cutting ceremony Thursday evening.

The 82-year-old building now houses the Greensboro Visitors Center along with the Greensboro Convention & Visitors Bureau and the Greensboro Sports Commission offices.

FOX8’s Michael Spears spoke with GCVB President/CEO Henri Fourrier about the building’s redevelopment and what it means not only for the High Point Road/Lee Street corridor but in marketing the city for national and international events.

The ribbon cutting and open house will be held 5 p.m. Thursday, May 22 at 2411 High Point Road, Greensboro.

    How embarrassing for a Visitor’s Center on such a horrible stretch of road. If this is the impression visitor’s get of the city, I don’t think they’ll want to visit again. Ugh.

      You’re absolutely right. It should be downtown, if we even need one. I question the need for one at all to be honest. With the internet, why do you even need to visit a building? I would bet not many people actual visit these places.

      And the logo looks second rate. Putting “North Carolina” under Greensboro makes us look small town. This regionality thing kills us. We never can be just Greensboro, we always have to associate ourselves with a region or state.
