IKEA Columbus Is Giving Away More Free Stuff Than Oprah During Its Opening Week

IKEA Columbus is opening in less than a week. When the doors open on June 7 thousands of customers are expected to stampede through the doors. It might sound like a crazy idea to try and be first in line for this madness, but trust me. It’s worth it.

The Swedish home furnishings store will be giving away so many prizes during its opening week, that it feels like it’s one of Oprah or Ellen DeGeneres’ holiday giveaways.
