The Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina area is one of the most culturally diverse areas in the US. With many of those who now call this area home coming here from all over the US and all over the world, an IKEA store would be a welcomed addition to the shopping options we currently have. Many residents make the four hour trek to Woodbridge, Virginia (Potomac Mills location) to shop at IKEA and while others in the state make the trip to the new Atlanta location. Of course, procuring larger items is a bit tricky when traveling at those distances. We, as residents of North Carolina and other supporters, wish to show our solidarity in our desire to bring an IKEA store to the area. IKEA Management: we, the undersigned, wish to present our interest in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina being considered for a future location. Thank you!
