Yeah IKEA seems to be trying to speed up opening stores in some areas of the world. Unfortunately it will be a very long time before they'd open anywhere near me.

Yeah Mith, It will probably 30 years or so.

I'm sure Memphis or Kansas City will get one in the near future.

I don't know. I think IKEA is insistant that they stick to the very large store format especially here in the US. Even though they are trying to speed up opening new stores I think they are still going to be going for the larger markets. Maybe Memphis and Kansas City have larger metros than I know of but I think it still might be a while before either city has an IKEA.
