Looked online and in our local Ikea store for a bed for my daughter, who lives in California. When she arrived at the Burbank store they were charging $20 above the internet and the price I found in the store near our home.
When I called to inquire, they said that as long as the product is not yet in the catalog...each store can charge whatever they want to... as the market bears. That seems like a crooked policy.
We were stuck because she needed the bed. Buyer beware...even economical Ikea is ripping and extra $20 wherever they can!
