So I got to take a tour of the brand new Portland IKEA this morning.
The Grand Opening of this highly anticipated retailer is scheduled for NEXT Wednesday, July 25th at 9am. Although, apparently some people can't wait, because IKEA management is expecting die-hard shoppers to start lining up and camping out outside the store a few days before!!!
Back to my "behind-the-scenes" tour. It was pretty impressive to say the least.
280,000 square feet of furniture, kitchen ware, appliances, etc.
A Supervised Children's Play Area
and my favorite part...
a full service in-store restaurant with breakfast, lunch, and dinner service!!!
