I wish they'd hurry and open in Oregon! We have to wait until sometime in 2007/2008. I'm hungry for meatballs, dammit.

Well done Ohio. Way to remain a few steps behind Michigan as always.

I saw on the news when they opened the store in Moscow. They were interviewing some old ladies, who seemed quite dissapointed. It turns out, they liked what they saw, but they didn't understand why everything was so very expensive. The Swedish reporter then told the ladies that the prices were in rubles, not in dollars. The women started crying and hugged the reporter...  Smile

It's stories like this that really feeds our Swedish egos...  silly

Sure, we're concerned for our lives. Just not as concerned as saving 9 bucks on a roundtrip to Ft. Myers.

Does anyone know where IKEA gets their raw materials from? I'm mainly interested in where the wood and textiles come from.

If having an IKEA is what separates the forward states from the backward states in your view, well, that's one heck of a narrow-minded view of the world. It really sticks out on an international forum like this one.

hey hey hey, come on now. In terms of job growth Ohio is 49th and Michigan is 50th. So clearly Ohio is better than Michigan.

BTW I hope it goes to CMH, I could use the cheap kitchen cabinets for the house rehabbing I do.

Actually, IKEA is a very forward thinking company when it comes to sustainability. Their wood doesn't come from old growth and they aim for as much renewability and recyclability as possible.

Actually Miss Keller, I said "as always" which would mean more than just a shitty furniture store.

It was, but people like SATX with there humor deficiencies would rather take a burn that understand its a facetious comment.

It's fairly rare to see a 'comedian' blame the audience for not getting his jokes. But hey, good luck with that.

And enjoy the covered parking and loading area. Great store in Seattle!
Just stopped at the new one in Sacramento on Saturday. Someone needs to sell cold drinks in the thousand acre, hundred degree parking lot.

Which may sound virtuous but it is a little like bragging that your omelettes don't contain dinosaur eggs. You just about need to invade national parks to find old growth anything.

Of course I can. However, it's a 200-mile drive in each direction, that makes it difficult when all you want is a bag of frozen meatballs, or return something that just didn't work out.

Better to be nouveau than never to have been riche at all.
25 CO7e7 : That's great news. But in my opinion, i don't see them opening in Cleveland... that's because the Pittsburgh store serves north east Ohio and Detroit
26 Post contains images Mir : Fantastic! I can't wait for DL/CO to start a daily 777 from CVG/CLE to ARN to cope with the increase in demand from the new store!!! -Mir
27 Post contains images DLPMMM : I don't think the gay population in the middle of Ohio would be large enough to support an Ikea store. Cincinnatti would probably be a better choice.
28 Post contains images N1120A : Which is entirely unfortunate I thought you like your 'balls fresh
29 Luv2fly : Are you even aware of just how large of a gay population CMH is home to?
30 Post contains images Dtwclipper : At least one
31 Luv2fly : Bright eyes, I live right outside of Cleveland!
32 N1120A : I agree that Columbus would be the best choice. A large percentage of Ikea's clientelle is made of college students who need cheap stuff that moves e
33 Dtwclipper : Bright eyes? I have no resemblance to Taylor AKA Charlton Heston.
34 Post contains images N1120A : Ok then, we will call you Juan Valdez for your bushy mustache
35 Dtwclipper : Which one? Carlos Sánchez of Medellín, Colombia or José F. Duval, a New York based actor.
