This graphic shows the complexity of the Ikea store layout. The layout has been carefully crafted in order to maximize the customers desire to shop for more than they initially bargained for. Most Ikea customers go in for a single item, but the floor plan and one way system ensures that the customers will spend more time in the store, and therefore buy even more products.

#Ikea’s next #solar-powered store is in the works. The home furnishings giant’s future Jacksonville, Florida store, slated to open in the fall, will be the newest location to feature a solar power system. Panel installation will begin this summer, and is expected to be complete by early fall. This will be Ikea’s fifth solar array in the state of #Florida, according to the retailer.
Although the benefits of flat-packed products are ideal for environmental and cost reduction purposes, assembling such items is often a pain point for customers. The IKEA assembly instructions satirized in the image above comically displays the frustration and extensive amount of time lost as a result of the process. Additionally, flat-packed products can be heavy and the dimensions at time make it difficult to transport items from the IKEA store location to the customer’s residence.
