    IKEA: IKEA -- A Little Bit of Sweden

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    IKEA.. the swedish furniture retailer has been in the Philadephia area for many years. The original store was one of the first in the U.S. Well, this year IKEA closed its original store and built a mega store in Conshohocken PA, located outside Philadelphia. And, it is in negotiations with the city of Philadephia to build an IKEA in south Philly.

    From its inception in 1943, IKEA has grown from a one-man show to the Swedish Valhalla of consumerism. With over 10,000 reasonably priced home furnishings and accessories displayed in each store, it's certain that you'll leave with more than you came to buy. And that's what IKEA is betting on. The Conshohocken location is one of the chain's largest, with 325,000 square feet, 46 room displays and a 300+ seating dining room.

    What to buy: IKEA has a golden rule: sell goods for just a bit more money than the cost of manufacturing, and sell a ton of them. The assemble-it-yourself furniture has been highly acclaimed by dorm residents and homeowners alike, thanks to quality craftsmanship and a low price tag. Renowned for those little items that make a house a home, IKEA also offers candles, picture frames, rugs, place mats and everything in between with the same concern for affordable quality.
