I arrived in the office this morning to the cacophony of girl chatter ; buzzing with the rumour that Ikea is finally making its way to the Southern tip of Africa.
Ali G mentioned in his MTV VMA speech a few years ago that Sweden gave us Abba, and two girls sucking off a donkey, but he failed to include Ikea in that list. It is of couse the store that makes every dude feel like an omnipotent DIY baws!
I have trawled the webs for news of this revelation, but all I could find was this link > http://www.ikeaza.co.za/ – and I’m pretty disappointed. If this is the standard Nevada Furniture is dropping from the start, soon every white folk home in Sandton and the surrounds will look identically average.
These guys obviously haven’t seen what the international counterparts do to launch a new store. Case in point: Wembley Store launched using cats. Instant win.
Any of you have the inside scoop re Ikea South Africa?
