Something truly exciting happened last week in our neck of the woods. A new Ikea store opened – the only one east of Quebec.
And it’s huge, the size of four football fields. I’m not sure if that’s Canadian football or American football. There is a difference. Canadian fields are longer by 12 yards.
Either way the store is ridiculously enormous. No, I’ve not visited the new Ikea yet. I do my utmost to avoid crowds. Any gathering of over twelve is a crowd, IMO. The attendees who waited in line (some over night) and clogged the roads on opening day numbered in the thousands. I’ll wait until the excitement diminishes a tad before shopping there.
But that won’t be tomorrow – National Frugal Fun Day. Being frugal in Ikea is an impossibility when confronted with all those stylish and fun bits and pieces.
Do you have an Ikea store nearby? Do you shop there often?
