    Angry No Ikea

    I know some people turn their noses up at Ikea products but I find them useful for low cost, cheerful and modern items. There must be other places they can locate them.

    Ikea not coming - because they'd be too popular

    Ikea won't be arriving in New Zealand any time soon.

    The prospect of giant homeware/furnishings business Ikea opening in New Zealand has long been anticipated and hoped for by fans of their low-priced designer goods.

    Rumours often circulate about the funky business opening a store here, with Auckland seen as the most likely place.

    But the chances of the chain opening here just took a step backwards.

    The Environment Court has banned the Swedish-headquartered furniture business from being a tenant in Redwood's new Mt Wellington venture because its stores are so popular it is feared traffic chaos will ensue.
