    It's my favorite place! You find such good deals! Just watch what you buy because something's are a better quality then others. I've always shopped carefully and my stuff has lasted me years and years

    On@weekdays and weeknight, there's only a few families and couples doing their shopping. So you can browse and walk the store much more quickly because it feels like you have the place to yourself.

    Get the ikea shopping app. You can skip the showroom and find all the locations of your flat pack items before you get to the store!

    We love picking out furniture and other household items we need. Sometimes they have a special where your receipt from the food court will be taken off your in-store purchases.

    If you can go on a weekday between opening and 3 or 4 pm, then you'll avoid the lines. Come with a plan to minimize wandering. The website is your friend.

    Its fun to check out all of the living space set ups they have. The food is good here too. You can eat and watch the airplanes take off and land across the turnpike at Newark Airport.

    Ikea is one of the most efficient and organized stores around. If you don't mind building your own furniture, you really can't go wrong.

    IKEA is where relationships go to die. That being said, this place is humongous (even by Ikea's standards), has a plethora of guilt inducing snacks and was NOT crowded on a Sat late afternoon. :-)

    Looking to furnish your home, IKEA has everything you will ever need! I suggest going during the week, as the weekends are usually crowded and rushed.

    These guys for everything they can to prevent you from calling directly the 908 number below and getting real help. Keep hitting "0" and you will eventually get through!

    I have never seen so many out of control children in one spot in my whole life. Also merchandise is difficult to find w/o walking though the whole store. Obvious marketing tactic.

    Home delivery line takes forever. There's only 1-2 employees manning it whether it's a weekday or weekend. Prepare to stand on line for at least 30 minutes!

    Stop by the cafeteria if you have a chance. They recently dropped their price for the Swedish meatball plate from $3.99 to $2.99. Read more

    Ikea is like Ikea. Looks the same everywhere. But this one is definitely cleaner, nicer and less crowded than the one in Brooklyn.

    Two smoke breaks, waited in line for food, ate the food, and used the bathroom before my Full Serve headrest was ready for pick up. I didn't mind the wait, might not be the same for everyone else.

    If you can't fit everything you bought in one trip, you can leave the excess merchandise in one of their huge lockers for $0.25 until closing time.

    Extremely slow, dull and unco-operative staff at the checkout. But otherwise, a great place to get THE best furniture. I got a sofa-bed, tv stand, and a shoe rack from here. Food sucks!

    Make sure your box is not damaged. If it is, there's a high likelihood that the furniture inside is damaged. Save yourself a trip back to the returns section with it's long wait times.

    Soft drinks have absolutely NO carbonation! I asked if they could change the canister and they said no - it's a known problem with their setup. Enjoy drinking syrup water :-(
