IKEA, Garden Ridge, HHGreg

18 posts in this topic

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.

Garden Ridge isn't doing especially well as a chain. I don't see them in the Triangle anytime soon.

There is also HHGregg Fine Lines. They sell very high end appliances and feature kitchens and other rooms built to show them off. There is one of these in CLT.

I'm surprised that Garden Ridge never expanded throughout the Triangle Area. HHGregg will most likely be there soon

I keep meaning to go by there but I hardly ever make it to the Northlake Mall area when I'm in town.

There is a Garden Ridge 1/4 mile from Richmond International airport that has always been busy. I did sign the petition and it did ask for a donation.

Hobby Lobby (or as my friend calls it, Lobby Hobby) is a cool place

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.

I think the Cary Trader Joe's is a done deal. The rumor is if there will be a Raleigh store.
