A few months ago, I was helping A. shop for furniture for her new apartment, and part of that shopping was done in the rat maze of IKEA. Of course, I shared the experience and had some thoughts about the company’s furniture. Readers responded with their experiences as well.
The latest news from Sweden is IKEA will begin selling edible products — more than just what is offered in their restaurants. The food will be inexpensive in the spirit of their furniture pricing. I’ve tried the company’s 50-cent hot dogs and their Swedish meatballs in their restaurant after several hours of shopping, and I’m not a big fan.
I don’t think I’ll be making extra trips to IKEA for my grocery shopping.
