We finally have a COSTCO that will open next month in May!
I love IKEA stores!!! I think IKEA home furnishing stores are innovative, keep you organized within your home or office and have items I've never seen in any other store! These popular European stores are all over the world, but the only ones I've seen are in Canada and the U.S. Their kitchens are to "die for".
In fact, the closest eastern stores are either Montreal, Quebec or Boston, Massachusetts, where both of them are at least 8 hours away!
So I went to http://www.ipetitions.com website and created a petition to get as many local Saint Johner's signatures as possible!
By using an assortment of websites, I hope to create enough traffic to create the desire to have an IKEA here in Saint John, NB. I'm trying for 100,000 signatures so that I can summit this petition to IKEA's Corporate offices.
If you know anyone from New Brunswick, Nova Scotia or Prince Edward Island (PEI) or even Maine, that would like to sign this petition, feel free to point them to this blog...
I've put this on my Twitter & LinkedIn connections:
I created a FACEBOOK Fan Page for this cause also:
I also created a Kijiji Community Ad in the Saint John area:
Here's the link to my petition for the people of New Brunswick, especially my neighbors & friends of Saint John:
