Civic inferiority complex to be cured this morning

The first word I heard on this was from a friend's email, entitled "The Manitoba Furniture Maker's Union will NOT be impressed." Indeed, it may be time to learn how to swim. (Or maybe just to flap your arms and scream louder.)

IKEA store coming to Winnipeg - WFP

Thankfully, I may never again have to ship cabinets and furniture from Bloomington MN to Dunseith ND, then drive there, load it up, pay an unholy duty at the border, and bring it home.

Interestingly, though, I have been to the Bloomington (Minneapolis) IKEA store perhaps ten times in the last three years, compared to the zero times I have shopped, nevermind driven on Route 90 south of Grant Avenue.

Sounds like a dull life...10 times to Ikea in last 3 years.

Actually, now that I think of it, Ikea is pretty dull.

Peggers are gonna love it.

I prefer stuff that lasts more than 2 years.

You rant and rant about how your urban utopia doesn't exist in Winnipeg yet you travel to Bloomington for Ikea. Weird.

Winnipeg needs an NHL franchise a lot more than it needs a new furniture store to shed our awful "inferiority complex" and lousy morale/reputation...

Well maybe if you stay north of Grant, someday IKEA will build a store in Point Douglas just for you.
