YES . . . it’s IKEA !
The $2 lunch shown in the previous post was enjoyed at this IKEA off Rte 95 in New Haven, CT as we headed from RI to PA last Friday. Lancaster, PA was the final stop on our road trip after visiting the new granddaughter and family in RI and CT.
As AC, Possum, Sara commented in the previous post, we
(almost) always brake for Ikea. This lunch deal was featured before too. And like in Alaska and Montana there are none close to our VA eastern shore home. One day we may just have to move near one. We’ve furnished much of our home with IKEA furnishings from beds to kitchen utensils, including the famous Poang chair.
FYI to our Swedish blogger friend, Christer, the largest IKEA opened in 1965 in Kungens Kurva in Skärholmen, south of Stockholm.Founded in 1943 in Sweden, IKEA is a privately held, international home products company that designs and sells ready-to-assemble furniture. It’s the world's largest furniture retailer. The company name is an acronym comprising the initials of the founder's name (Ingvar Kamprad), the farm where he grew up (Elmtaryd), plus his home parish (Agunnaryd, in Småland, South Sweden).
It’s easy to find a store – just look for yellow lettering on a blue building.
