Local IKEAphiles in mourning

March 12, 2008
So much for IKEA dropping one of its stores in the Indianapolis area anytime soon.

A store opening today in a Cincinnati suburb is about as close as Indianapolis is going to see, at least for a while, IBJ Associate Editor Andrea Muirragui Davis wrote in a story today.

An IKEA spokesman said Cincinnati could pull from a larger population base and that Indianapolis wasnâ??t close to one of its warehouses.

Do you think IKEA had other, unspoken reasons for not putting a store here?
