The citizens of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada and the many shoppers who flock to our great city from various cities and towns throughout the prairie provinces, north-western Ontario and the Northern United States want Ikea to open a store in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Our closest Ikea in Canada is in Calgary, at least a 14 hour drive away, and we yearn for one, closer to home where we can spend our hard earned money or in most cases, rack up huge credit card bills to furnish our homes in Ikea's funky-European decor. There have been many rumors, or maybe wishful thinking that Ikea would be opening a store, possibly smaller than the others in Canada, but a store nonetheless. We don't need everything you sell under the sun but we want to buy your merchandise, the items that you tease us with on your website but that we cannot purchase online! Please Ikea, don't disappoint the shoppers in the province of Manitoba. We love you and cannot live another day without you being near. Please open a store in Winnipeg...preferably sooner than later!
