And not a day too soon. Holy cow, after literally years of waiting and begging the IKEA in South Denver is finally opening on July 27th. I predict massive traffic jams. I plan to go there and sell tiny meatballs with tiny swedish flags in them accompanied by iced-lingonberry-juice-like-beverage.
According to their wonderful press folks at BM.com (and no that isn't the homepage for a site about Bowel Movements):
415,000-square-foot IKEA Centennial, with approximately 1,500 parking spaces
That's right. 1,500 parking spaces! Fortunately there's also an enormously under-used parking lot to the south of the IKEA.
