Ikea opened yesterday. And from what I can see it was a great success. My doubts about pricing have been quelled. I still think there are things ridiculously priced. But after seeing the thousands of square feet of space. Along with finding some great things at prices I have never seen in the D.R. I think they will do fine. I went earlier in the day about 11am. Was told it would not open until after 1pm, once the president was there to cut the ribbon. Finally opened and it was a line to get in. Even when I left @ 9pm. And the Swedish meatballs are just like I remember them. Welcome Ikea!
