IKEA has provided bicycles to most of its staff to encourage ccyling to work.

This snippet was heard on the Steve Wright in the afternoon show... and Wright pondered about whether or not they would be able to follow the instructions in the flat pack to put the bike together :lol:

I hope they gave them a copy of "Sidwells'" :wink:

Be ok as long as they got one bike at a time - saw a poor bloke setting up his office once ,with stuff from IKEA( mix of different styles of desks) - all the legs were bundled together, all the tops in one bunch etc etc - and all different - was in and out of his place for some weeks --took him that long to sort it out, after many builds- he got it by accident rather than design.

Ikea are having a real rough time with the PC lot wanting them to have thier stores in the center of town so you can buy a whole kitchen and a sofa and take it home by bus!

They have been picked out and repeatedly refused planning permission.
This is thier attempt to appear green and address the percieved transport issues.

I dont see anthing wrong with thier out of town centers as long as the queue stays within the site. They are building communities (usually in the returned/missing goods queue!)

My nearest Ikea is 2 hours away thanks to the planners. they have been obstructed in Southampton and Portsmouth by the planners so I drive to Bristol or Birmingham with an empty van and visit my sisters and come home with a full van. I am sitting at an Ikea desk on an Ikea chair.

How green is that!
