At the very least there should be free delivery within their catchment areas, 30 miles or so. Even Argos offers that in the capital.
By definition Ikea is a car-dependant ‘experience’, so if we could alter that here by allowing people to get there via public transport & have the stuff delivered then that would be fantastic. We could ‘lead the way’ in this respect.
Ikea are going to make a fortune out of us – we should set the highest standards of sustainablity with this store (including packaging, of which this store generates vast quantities)
I don’t blame people for shopping here, esp in this country with the price of housing. There’s little money left to furnish new homes.

There’s a press conference at 4 o’clock in Govt Bldgs, so more info should emerge this evening.
