Ikea, the Swedish company that invented yellow and blue, has changed its mind about building a store in St. Louis. A company spokesman announced simply, “Have you SEEN the intersection of Forest Park Parkway and Vandeventer?!”
If you’re moving to St. Louis, may we join the zillions in welcoming you. However, there are a few things you need to know about our city if you’re going to live here.
First, we’re fine with the Swedish meatballs, but you may have to toast them. It’s just a thing, okay?
The rumor that an Ikea store is being built in Fenton where the Chrysler plant once stood is just that.. a rumor. A spokesperson for Ikea told StlToday it isn't true. He also denied they were going to build at Northwest Plaza and at Hampton and 40, but he didn't deny that they were going to build at the nearly vacant MidAmerica Airport on the East side. So make want you want of that. I don't think they could be more obvious, unless maybe if someone actually asked them if they were going to build at MidAmerica Airport.
