Ikea is opening a hostel in Norway where shoppers can stay overnight:
It brought us Swedish meatballs, Billy bookshelves and endless queues on London's North Circular on Saturday afternoons. Now Ikea is going one step further and opening the Ikea Hostel, where customers can stay overnight if they haven't finished their shopping.
Later this month Ikea in Norway will let shoppers kip down in one of its two Oslo warehouses, an operation that will last a week. Frode Ullebust, a company spokesman, said: "It will be like an alternative hostel. There will be the regular dormitory with lots of beds stacked up together.
"We will also have a bridal suite, with a round bed and a hanging chandelier, and the luxury suite, where customers can enjoy breakfast in bed," he said. Family rooms will also be available for parents and children.
