We helped bring IKEA to Ohio?
OK, more details coming out about the upcoming IKEA outside Cincinnati. The best one is that its scheduled to open in the fall of 2007.

According to a quote from this article, we (and 99,998 others) have helped bring IKEA to the area.

"Ikea says it has tracked 100,000 customers within two hours' drive of the West Chester location who have visited their other stores."

I don't think I am nutty enough to camp out for their opening day craziness; however, we will definitely be there the first weekend they open. A 1 1/2 drive to Cincinnati sure beats the 5 hour drive to Chicago.
