The Swedish joy = IKEA
Off to an IKEA today with the misses for the first time.

Any advice other than 'don't bother going'?

Are the meatballs good?

I always get a semi when I go to Ikea. I have no idea why.

Good cheap interesting food in cafeteria...

Furniture good value...but a pain if assembly needed...

Re: The Swedish joy = IKEA
My closest IKEA is 34 miles away.

Don't think I'll bother.

As someone who furnished his first house almost entirely from IKEA (crap but cheap), my other great advice if you do have to assemble anything, is to get an electric drill/screwdriver and appropriate sized allen key bits and two batteries (use one - have the other on charge).

On no account try and assemble anything using the tiny, hand operated allen key supplied in the box.

Pain of death going to that place.
As mentioned - get it online, save the pain of traipsing round and buying a whole heap of shit your missus has collected or "needs"

Good place to stock up on batteries. AAs AAAs and the "hearing aid" ones are cheap as chips. Found in the lighting section. Good for cheap handyman stuff - electric screwdrivers, fixings sets, that sort of thing.

I still refer to the most local one as Eye-kee-ah Edmonton rather than the revised Ick-Ee-Yah Tottenham.

As others have said, kill yourself instead.

At the very least, don't buy anything you have to assemble. The shop is my idea of hell on earth. Assembling their shit products afterwards is almost as bad.

IKEA = Nazi sympathizers!

Mind you on WHO they'll probably get more customers.

I'm almost sure there are customers in Ikea who have not left the place for years.

Yeah, first time ever. Took ages to go round, bought loads of tealights and generally found it ok.

This was the new one in Reading, so it was full of fat munchkins with 6 kids each.

Re: The Swedish joy = IKEA
I'm fairly certain IKEA exists solely to sell candles

Practically every time I'm there we end up with 100s of tea light candles. Because you can never have enough can you.

Re: The Swedish joy = IKEA
Going alone to an Ikea to buy something is fine. Going with my wife... nooooooooooooooooooo... I literally refuse to go shopping with my Mrs. Its improved our relationship no end.

Re: The Swedish joy = IKEA
Rid, is it your first time in Ikea with your missus or your first time ever.?

Fwiw my experience is that being there with a woman takes five times longer than being there unaccompanied.

Re: The Swedish joy = IKEA
This isn't a personal dig to you Ridz but I'm baffled how a bloke can live to adulthood and not have been to an Ikea before?

Unless you're from Mauritania or a tribe in the Amazon or something.

Re: The Swedish joy = IKEA
I have been to IKEA twice with the missus. On both occasions we ended up at the queues to pay with a bag of rubbish (candles, picture frames, lamp-shades) that was not worth waiting for so we ditched it.

On the second time I got in the car and questioned my life.

Re: The Swedish joy = IKEA
My Mrs is one of the longest serving workers at Thurrocks Ikea, think it's 14/15 years now, she's met Mr Ikea, very old bloke who wears a smart suit and wears old slippers like your Granddads all wore/wear and talks to all the workers and is very down to earth. It's mainly the 2 sons who visits the stores nowadays as the old mans getting on a bit.

Every Christmas each worker receives the same present from Mr Ikea which in the past have included a fold up bicycle. kindle and very recently a food blender. For the Christmas party a Marquee gets put at the back of the store where all food & drink is free for one night where the workers get right shit faced.

Pointless info i know, personally i've been to Ikea twice and found out what ever you buy falls to bits within a year or two at the most.
