Love IKEA and its sale but hate the crowds? Well, what if we tell you there’s a way to shop in your favourite furniture store while avoiding the crowd?
IKEA is packed on weekends and even more so during sale season. However, you can shop at your own pace, sit and relax on a few sofas for a while, before you decide to buy something. All you have to do is avoid visiting the store during rush hours.
Peak hours are often every evening on weekdays and throughout the day on weekends. So, if you want to visit IKEA, make it a point to visit only in the non-peak hours. In fact, visiting IKEA on the first working day of the week is not wise. More often than not, people come to return goods bought over the weekend. So, it’s best to plan your visit on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday, either during late morning or early afternoon.
If you can only make it on weekends, then visit first thing in the morning or just an hour before closing time. People don’t start early on the weekends, so that is an excellent time to browse the store at your pace. And just an hour before closing time is when families get busy with dinner, so you can have an early dinner and head to IKEA.
On weekends, visit IKEA on a Friday rather than a Saturday since families prefer relaxing on Fridays and shopping on Saturdays.
