On Friday, November 10, and Saturday, November 11, in cooperation with the Minneapolis Police Department, technicians from Hyundai will be on site in the parking lot of the old K-Mart building at 10 W. Lake St. to provide free security upgrades for Hyundai vehicles that have been affected by an issue that leaves them vulnerable to theft. The event will run each day from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.
Hyundai drivers are asked to arrive in their vehicles on the Blaisdell Ave. S. side of the parking lot. A greeter will meet drivers to obtain vehicle information. During the upgrade, drivers can wait in a heated tent with seating and bathroom facilities. Once drivers meet with the greeter, the entire process should take approximately 30 minutes.
