We know we have many readers outside of Chicago, including Minneapolis, Madison, Champaign, St. Louis...the list goes on. Bjorn wrote to us from Minneapolis with this great tip for those who are local:
During the month of August, IKEA in Minneapolis is offering free delivery to anyone who uses public transit (light rail or bus) to get to the store. Park along the Hiawatha corridor, make a day of it - IKEA at one end of the light rail line, and Downtown Minneapolis at the other.
Another Minneapolis hot tip: Check out this old post from Chicago reader Roni about the Minneapolis Room & Board Outlet: free delivery to their distribution center in Oak Brook (and only $69 for home delivery)!
