winnipeg and ikea is all about status...who really cares....i prefer to have the flagship EQ3 store, but i guess we are not one of the big boys until we have a massive parking lot with thousands of mini vans roaming about a giant blue box.

they should put it in the top floor of the Bay downtown.....imagine that?
I wish to highlight the word 'common' in commonly reported lol-and as for Palliser being the second largest in all of North America...well...we can dream I suppose but that pinnacle has yet to be reached.
