After having heard that IKEA was opening a store in Jacksonville I was excited to have partnered with them for a sneak peak before the store opens on the 8th November. They gave us a privates tours around the store in small groups and served us their signature dishes from the restaurant. I enjoyed the strawberry parfait and the diam cake from the spread.
I am most excited about the furniture pieces with clean lines and minimalistic look which could nicely be paired with the high end furniture and they would add so much character. They have cute pieces for outdoor seating and the floor tiles for patio are my favorite. I could never buy them as we didn’t have a store nearby and we had to make trips to Orlando to get stuff. But now the wait is over and I cannot hold my excitement!!! Let me know in the comments section which is your favorite thing to buy from IKEA.
The company’s motto is creating better everyday life by providing well designed furnishings at affordable price so more people can incorporate it in their lives. The store roof has solar panel installed to fulfill its commitment to use renewable source of energy.
Store opens on the 8th of November, 9 am but the entertainment starts at 6 am.
The restaurant opens 30 minutes before store and serves $2.00 breakfast. You can line up from 6th November as they have exciting prices and gifts during the week.
