IKEA Orlando

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Orlando got its own Ikea store today.Some fans of the Swedish home-furnishing retailer were lined up outside the store since Monday. By sunrise this morning, hundreds were waiting to get in. Devotees of the retailer praise its modern furniture and low prices, kept low by having buyers assemble much of the furniture. Ikea was founded in 1943 by Ingvar Kamprad. The name IKEA was formed from the founder's initials (I.K.) plus the first letters of Elmtaryd and Agunnaryd, the farm and village where he grew up. Ikea opened its first Florida store in Sunrise last month. A Tampa store is scheduled to open in 2009 near Ybor City. The closest location to the state had previously been in Georgia.
