Lines open Monday for Miami-Dade IKEA

 

Lines opened Monday morning for the highly-anticipated debut of Miami-Dade’s first IKEA home furnishings store in Sweetwater, adjacent to Dolphin Mall. Early customers vie for freebies, including an Ektorp sofa for each of the first 39 adults in line, a Poang armchair for the next 100 adults, and a Famnig heart-shaped soft toy for the first 100 children.

Also, the first 2,500 adults will receive a prize envelope with an IKEA gift card worth $10 to $250 or a “Buy One, Get One Free” voucher for cinnamon buns, hotdogs or frozen yogurt.

Formal festivities begin at 6 a.m. Wednesday with Cuban coffee and ceremonial flag raisings and a log sawing. The store formally opens at 9 a.m.
