IKEA, Garden Ridge, HHGreg

Recommended Posts

A thread similar to the Charlotte thread. There are a few regional stores that have managed to elude the triangle. With us now having Saks, and Nordstroms, and Costco and BJ's there are a few stores that would logically follow. I've read in the News & Observer that "Trader Joes" Grocery Stores are looking hard at and triangle entry in Cary. And I suspect that the following spots won't be to far along.

HHGregg>> Electronics Retailer like Best Buy and Circuit City- nearest location Charlotte.

IKEA>>Gigantic Home Furnishing Warehouse-nearest location DC, Atlanta.Petition to Bring IKEA to the Triangle

Garden Ridge>>Greenery, Household Decorations- nearest location, Greensboro

The Container StoreContainers big and small- nearest loc, DC, Atlanta

What is the Triangle ready 4? :D

I LOVE the Container Store. I always try to put it on the itenerary when I go to Atlanta. With Organized Living shutting down and Hold Your Own closing in Pleasant Valley, we are back where we were 10 years ago. Hold Your Own, Target, and BB&Beyond are alright, but the Container Store is definitely the best. I haven't been to Garden Ridge or HHGreg. They sound great. Of course I'd love to have IKEA, butI think it will be a while before they come.

My retail wish-list:

Trader Joe's - I'm willing the Cary store rumor to be true.

IKEA - Potomac Mills is a long drive.

H & M - Migrate!

I'm not feeling deprived of food, furnishings and fashionable clothing; but these are a few of my favorite stores. Periodically I go to their respective web pages and check to see where new stores are located. I try to ascertain whether this area is likely to be on their 'coming soon' list in the near future.
