Most people – I say most, there’s always going to be one or two who shudder and say no – but most people would have ventured into an IKEA store at some point in their lives, either to kit out a room, their whole house or just to buy one item they’ve seen in the catalogue (or to go in, see the...

Ikea is one of those places that inspires deep feelings amongst consumers, and they are definitely feelings at polar opposites. Even those who adore many of the products and are big fans of the prices, such as my husband, nonetheless suffer large bouts of angst when a trip to Ikea is mentioned...

“The Ikea Experience”

published 08/10/2006

it's cheap - dare I say, it's fun?

the crowds and therefore the queues.

Ikea is one of those stores you either love or hate. I'm afraid I fall into the category of those who love it! My husband complains when we go there, but I do feel that secretly, he loves it too! We had to visit today as the swivel chair we use for the computer was giving up the ghost. We have...

Question: What does one's husband suggest you do on a bitter cold Sunday afternoon with three children? Answer: 1. Go to the pub and sit round the table eating a roast chicken dinner. 2. Watch DVD's and hog biscuits and popcorn. 3. Go to Ikea. We did the last option and here's my review on this...

“Furniture for the brave.”

published 21/12/2007

Reasonably cheap, wide range of stock.

You have to make the stuff yourself.

Want to know what I did today? Course you do. I went to work for a half day (and, I'm not ashamed to admit that while there I did quite a bit of hiding in a cupboard so that I wouldn't be asked to help with setting out the buffet) and then, buoyed up by party food and a paper cup of shandy, I...

I am a big fan of IKEA, I have bought and built several items of furniture from there, my bedding is from there and practically all my kitchen equipment too. I do however have a few gripes about the place, not enough to put me off spending my hard earned cash though. So what is IKEA? It is a...

Furnish your home smartly and cheaply

A long walk through temptation

I note with great delight that when searching for reviews including Ikea that they number 666 - The mark of the beast- so here goes with number 667. I am fortunate or unfortunate (depending on your perspective) to have an Ikea store within 5 minutes drive from home. This is more in theory than in...

“Ikea is meatballtastic”

published 20/10/2009

Good variety of items, good shopping experience

Can be busy

I had never visited an Ikea until recently, mainly because I have never lived near one. I now live just up the road from the one on Wembley and so decided to take a visit. Ikea is a Swedish store that basically sells everything for the home from furniture to decoration. It is a huge store and is...

Good value, individual design, creche

Queues, credit card charge, can't reserve stock

The first time I paid a visit to IKEA, Wednesbury branch, I made the fatal mistake of choosing a Sunday, just before opening time. The queues stretched right along the front of the building and half way down the carpark. **************************** STORE AND PRODUCTS ****************************...

Ikea A couple of weeks ago I again relented much to my disgust and deep regret to accompany my wife on a shopping trip. I am afraid when it comes to shopping I am the worlds most impatient and easily bored person around. After I had finished winding up all the egg timers in Robert Dyas and...

“Lego For Adults”

looks good, cheap prices

wants screwing

From the newspaper (1st September, 2004): Three people were trampled to death, sixteen injured, women molested in the queues, journalists and photographers beaten when Ikea opened a store in the Saudi Arabian town of Jeddah. Ikea had promised the first 250 customers vouchers between 20 and 100...

“Buy Ikea, Shop Till U Drop”

Quality furniture and more

Transporting

Buy quality IKEA, Shop till you Drop! I am a regular visitor and I regularly purchase many items from IKEA. A day out with a difference and it can be stressful if you allow it to be. The First stress of the day is when you arrive at the Ikea store, parking your car is fine during week days, but...

Quality issues.

I was never sure how the concept which is Ikea would cotton on in France. The French are traditionalists, love their old furniture, passed down from generation to generation, and I thought that Ikea would have difficulty breaking down the defences and establishing a market in rural parts of...

I would say I'm a regular IKEA-ER. Yes I admit it, guilty as charged. I'm the lady who has the same £25 carpet and same flat-packed shelves, units, beds and candles as around 25 million of the British population, but I do mean it when I say what I have bought from IKEA does feel and look like...

“Big, Blue and Yellow”

published 02/09/2005

Vast range, good prices, sturdy furniture

Customer services a bit 'iffy'

I first encountered the large Swedish furniture retailer when I was living in Germany 16 years ago. I went there because I needed to buy some stuff for my flat (1 bedroom, living room with a coal fire - only source of heat in the whole flat, small kitchen with a washbasin and boiler and a toilet...
