The IKEA summer sale is one of the most popular promotions run in IKEA stores. I remember that last year the deals were incredible and I was able to get a few things I absolutely needed for a fraction of the price. The products on sale will be available while supplies last and no rain-checks will be given. Note also that the selection might vary from one store to another.
The sale starts this Friday on June 22nd at 6pm and it lasts until midnight with discounts up to 50% off. It’s funny because their newsletter says that ‘when darkness falls, so do prices’, but as far as I know, this June 22nd darkness is not going to fall before 10pm ;)
Some people just can’t assemble IKEA furniture! I remember for example, Marc and Stephen trying to assemble a filing cabinet for a good 2 hours. For all of you less handy folks, IKEA can recommend an independent assembly service that will come to your house and do it for you. It’s supposed to be reasonably priced, but I’ve never tried it, so let us know if you did.
