Be prepared to walk miles. First you have to walk a long way from your parking spot to the entrance. Next you walk forever inside the store to finally arrive at the place where the stuff you intended to buy is located, if you're lucky enough to find it after spending considerable time trying to locate it. When you finally think you're done shopping, ready to check out, you're in for another unpleasant surprise. Where is the checkout? There isn't on in sight anywhere, and there are no signs informing you where it may be located. Ikea doesn't make it easy to get out of it's store. You have to circle around and through all the different departments again to finally arrive at the checkout. Once there, you realize that they do not appreciate your business. They don't care wether or not you buy there. They don't have to. They know they will always have plenty of people worldwide you shop there because they think it's cheap. Their tasteless and low quality merchandise isn't cheap in the end. And consider the hours you had to spent getting in and out of there, wasting your time, stressing out you body and mind. You could have made money in that time ( and buy something better than Ikea stuff with it), and you wouldn't have exposed yourself to the health-destoying effects of stress. Shopping at Ikea is in the end a very expensive thing to do. And most of the stuff you bought there you probably don't really need or use .
Ikea is by far the worst shopping experience anywhere. Do yourself a favor. Don't shop there.
