There is no IKEA in Denver, or all of Colorado for that matter.We've heard they wanted to open a store at Flatirons - but were refused because the IKEA big-wigs insist on that huge yellow and blue monstrosity of a building... and the Flatirons design is stone and rustic as not to contrast with the nearby foothills and mountains. aka Flat Irons.I don't know why they can't build one on I-25 up by all the furniture stores. They'd get plenty of traffic - just in case any IKEA big-wigs read AT!
I have no basis for size- is this IKEA larger than the one built in Paramus, NJ? I originally thought that the Paramus IKEA was the largest one built but 346k sq ft sounds pretty huge.
hmm not sure about Paramus, but the Red Hook IKEA is 20,000 square feet larger than the Cincinnati IKEA that opened last month. i believe they get larger all the time...because when it was built almost 10 years ago(?), Schaumburg was the largest.
Happy happy joy joy.Of course, ironically, where I now live I'm closer to Paramus than Brooklyn, but there's a *ferry*....
Yikes. As a Red Hook resident, I sadly await the traffic. I have no idea why they chose a place that was not right off of a highway ramp. Most people will not be taking the ferry.
Yay!! I can't wait!!!
My friend works for IKEA corporate and says they have no plans to open any new stores in the US because the economy over there is not stable. That is music to my ears. And as a Denverite I am glad to know when I return home from living in Sweden I won't see that awful yellow and blue any more.
yes its great design by Europeans but please keep in mind our environment when shopping. Cheap does not translate into disposable products.Buy what you need- only what you really need.check free cycle and other sites for free bees before buying new products.good luck.
Yayy- I think. I have never been to an IKEA so this will be my first.
Black Sheep.I'm not opposed to remaining IKEAless here in the beautiful centennial state. It's just weird because everyone on AT talks about it like it's Target or Macy's.Any time I've gone to their website - the item I wanted was available only in the store. How handy.CC
CC-Yeah, they have a backward way of doing things. The stores are the main stocking places for goods. Not from the catalog. The catalog is the bare minimum of IKEA products.I honestly have grown to loathe IKEA since moving to Swe. Most of the stuff is cheap college dorm crap that you buy to use until you move, then throw it away as it can't handle a move.
It's official: Ikea DENVER coming !!!Press release this morning:http://www.denverpost.com/business/ci_10427043
