IKEA opened Feb 17th. We went on Thursday and it was actually pretty organized. The Swedes must be sticking around during the opening. Goodness knows it won’t operate this smoothly when Dominicans get their hands on it . (I’m only half joking :) )
We went again today however and they had a line to get into the store! It must have been over capacity. Marvin and I, growing in our Dominican ways, did not want to stand in line. So we snuck in the back way, up the down and down the up and in the out. I think we avoid getting questioned because of the way we look. All the Dominicans that were following us all got turned around and sent back to wait in line.
Once inside, we enjoyed a lovely IKEA lunch and later ice cream. It is just like any other IKEA I’ve ever been to. It reminds me of home :)
Some photos from our first visit. And yes, Marvin is wearing the same shirt he has on in every blog post. GO USA!
