Low on your supply of “Gnårps” or “Alderblaads”? Well, good news, all of your Swedish furniture dreams might be coming true pretty soon.
BizTimes just announced today that the famous furniture store, IKEA, may be setting up shop in Oak Creek. And with the nearest store currently in Schaumburg, well, we’d love to not have to drive 80 miles to spend $300 on lightbulbs and doorknobs.
With 41 current stores and with new stores going up in Indiana and Ohio, the Oak Creek location has not yet been approved, but announcement could be made as early as this week.
But.. what does this REALLY mean for us?
More sleepless nights trying to figure out how to get your box of wood and screws from “Figure A” to a functioning piece of furniture?
More overwhelmingly content meals of famous Swedish meatballs and lingonberries?
We’re not sure, but one things for sure: we can’t wåit.
