    Zzz. Literally the best thing you can do is to get here as close to opening as possible. Especially if you're returning something or doing furniture pick-up.

    Disinterested staff, messy layout, poor quality products--why is ikea so popular?

    Help, I'm still in here and can't find my way out. I'm near the display of European influenced housewares. Send rations and an extra cart.

    You will NOT go wrong with delivery w/JW Logistics. Installers call before they arrive and follow up to make sure you're satisfied!

    Look up the bin # of what you want, on their website before you go then skip the showroom.

    Only come on weekdays or as soon as they open on the weekends. Weekend afternoons are literally the worst, don't do it.

    Mad house! Staff not available on the floor or helpful. Definitely go in with a specific plan or end up browsing forever.

    Watch amateur couples break up and "successful" couples slowly realize that this is what it has finally come too. Also, there are tons of pregnant woman, so if that's your thing...

    Enter through the exit and go straight for the 50% off as is.

    Avoid it like the plague. Their showroom is like a rat maze, you spend way too much time building low quality furniture and the return dept move like molasses in Decmeber.

    Avoid the garage at all costs and if you know what you want, enter directly into the exit for the warehouse

    The Stockholm collection is pretty dope, as are the lovbacken and Stockholm mirror.

    Don't come an hour within closing. The employees will start telling you they are closed and to "please get out"

    Try the marzipan princess cakes in the cafe. They're actually the best thing on earth.

    Everything is nice as in Ikeas worldwide... but people at the home delivery section are plain awful. Rudest and worst service I ever got, for real.

    Bring your seasickness meds. The showroom floor bounces. Petty strange for a concrete slab floor.

    I have to admit that I actually do enjoy assembling Ikea furniture. In my occupation my work is intangible so seeing an actual piece of furniture come together with my own hands is very satisfying.

    Skip the pencil and paper. Snap a photo of the price tag with your phone. Thisty? Mix the lingonberry juice and Sierra Mist for a refreshing concoction!

    Seriously Ikea, when there are over 25 ppl waiting to return something you may want to have more than 2 ppl working!!

    Fun game to play at IKEA Emeryville: drive in back and count the SUVs & trucks parked in the 'compact only' section. #asshats

    Worst IKEA restaurant ever. No condiments, no Swedish Pancakes... They need to take a lesson from the Portland, OR location!

    Don't go at 8:40pm cause they close down earlier than the posted times. What a scam, never shopping there again!

    The food is as affordable as it can possibly get, but it's really delicious! Swedish meatballs or ribs with fries are my favorite.

    Try spending all day living in one of the efficiency apartment demos. Napping gets a bit odd. So does peeing in the un-plumbed toilet.

    If you're looking for the world-famous cinnamon buns, head downstairs toward check-out. The ones upstairs are not the genuine article.

    Don't worry about the floor shaking all the time; it's not an earthquake, and somehow it's actually normal.

    Worst customer service ever! Makes me embarrassed to be in the same age group as these employees. Insulting/being rude is NOT cute, kids.

    Bargain lunch: meatballs, and lingonberry sauce. Skip the mashed potatoes and gravy, substitute steamed veggies. Add a glass of lingonberry drink and it's pretty healthy & well under $5.00.

    Here's a tip DO NOT expect the greatest customer service from the ghetto employees when paying for both home items and food. Horrible customer service at both counters. CSR Training FAIL!

    The Swedish meatballs at the cafe are a great reprieve from the madness that is ikea. A must try!

    Check the item number on the tag with what you're buying! I bought cushions from a box marked $1.49. Got to checkout & was charged $3.99. When I showed them the box they said the # was different!

    Most of the furniture is OK, but you find a gem here and there :). Also, too many choices make your head spin.

    Stuffed salmon filet and lingonberry drink is the best possible combination.

    Park on the top of the parking structure. There is always good parking up there. People seem to be afraid of unshaded parking!

    Skip the entrance where the escalator takes you to the showroom; enter through the exit, sneak through the self-checkout lanes and head straight to the As-Is section. Bargains!

    Never, I repeat, NEVER throw away your receipt. You can't exchange, get IKEA credit or return without one, even if you have the card you bought it with. Strict!

    Get the cinammon rolls! And never leave without checking the as-is section. Great deals to be found there.
