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

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.

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.

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 serves the north west, so basically the north is taken care of... i can see them opening in Columbus because it's in the middle and it'll serve wider range of Ohio cities.

What do ya'll think ?

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.

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 easily and will last them through grad school.
