Default Ikea in MN

So we just got our own IKEA store. No more trips to Chi-town for the ikea junkies... But i went with my mom and bro today, and damn!

$30 !! And with wheels. And with how they sell operate they must make a killing...



They had floor standing lights for $5 that are nice!

www.ikea.com.

It'* not even laid out like a furniture store. My bro got a toolset for general stuff @ college, 6 bux and they're built tools in a nice case!

There'* a path going through the store, you go through everything, write down what you want, or pick it up (if it'* there). Then you hit the self serve warehouse for most items, and very large ones are in the one they get it for you. They've got furniture for most all modern styles, a huge cafe in the store, with 99c kids meals, they've got stuff for your kitchen, knives, glassware, even flooring.

The snap in flooring is on a landing on some big stairs, sign reads "21,000 people walk on this floor everyday, 1.50 a square foot".
