IKEA Grand Opening - Canton MI - June 7th

IKEA Grand Opening in Canton Posted by Picasa

"There was an IKEA in Burbank CA down the street from where I lived and I would go shop there once a year to remind why I shouldnt go to IKEA - The product they sell is cheap - everyone and their brother will have it within the year - and it takes like 4 hours from start to finish whether you are buying 1 item or 100. Go once and see why shopping at IKEA sucks the creative juices from your head! - Shop local - Be individual!"
