Don’t block food, retail at Ikea site in Fishers

Keywords Opinion

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.
