The IKEA in Minnesota is doing a massive remodel, although when I had done my pre-shopping, as you do for an IKEA shopping expedition, there was no mention of an upcoming remodel. Same thing when I walked in the store - it was not until you were in the throes of the madness that is IKEA that you saw the mess.
Most of the items I had preselected a few weeks earlier were not available anymore....the few employees that you can usually chase down were now a part of the remodel and truly it was customer helping customer. In my 55 years of shopping, it is the most poorly operated remodel of a store trying to remain open I have ever seen.
I am stunned to see a large company like IKEA does not have a better model for how to do a remodel and stay open. ( Target has it down to a science.) Not worth going to until it is done.
