You finally get an Ikea and the first thing Fishers wants to do is cry about the progress that having an Ikea brings [Fishers won’t let Ikea fuel retail blitz, Oct. 31]. Ikea should just cancel plans and leave so you can have that precious land for office space.
I am a relatively frequent visitor to the Ikea near Cincinnati. The lack of retail immediately around the store is frustrating. After a long day of shopping I’d love to go and get something to eat.
It is what I like about Premium Outlets in Edinburgh. There are places to eat right around the shopping center. If I had to go hunt for something after, I’d probably visit less often.
I would like to add that due to the lack of retail right around the Ikea near Cincinnati, I usually spend little to no money after leaving the store. I might grab a little something from inside the store to eat on the way home. But typically, I just leave and drive back to Indy.
I just don’t care to drive around the area trying to find a place to eat. Just too few options available right around the store.
