IKEA has officially announced their plans to build a Portland store.
“The store will be built on nearly 19 acres at the southwestern corner of I-205 and Airport Way…75 bicycle racks and two light-rail stations will provide convenient access”
While I’m no fan of massive consumerism, I think IKEA will be a good neighbor. And, given their Swedish background, I bet they’ll be a great possible partner for bikey non-profits and programs. I also know that IKEA does cool stuff for kids like give them a free helmet on their birthday.
Welcome to Portland IKEA!
