Looks like the old Sears. I work at the Lefrak high rise so pretty excited.

Love this one. Am not sure if the closeness and more frequent shops will equal the wallet
draining less frequent shopping expeditions - or if it will surpass. Smiling thinking about it.

I'm psyched! I have zero interest in their furniture but I do love their smaller items. Impulse purchases galore.

I can just see the traffic jams now....  Should be a nice boom to the local economy.

in case you didn't hear

this Ikea is testing out a new 'commuter-model'. so no furniture pickup! only delivery of furniture

small items will be available for purchase as normal.
