3. Eight of the world’s 10 biggest Ikea stores are in China.
6. Store management do not discourage shoppers from sleeping on the beds and sofas.
Ikea spokesman Josefin Thorell told the Wall Street Journal: “This is a spontaneous phenomenon. Ikea in China does nothing to prevent nor anything to attract sleepers … we don’t see it as a problem, we’re happy people feel at home in our stores. Certainly, it entails a little extra work for the staff. But on the other hand, if customers try out our furniture and like it, we can sell an extra mattress or two.”
