On a side note, any chance they'll build some nice townhouses around the Rim so we can move and walk over to shop/eat/watch movies?
There's already apartments over there... called The Haven. Luxury apartments... very trendy & nice!

From what I remember (and reading here) the Ikea was planned to be very close to Camp Bullis (as were a lot of other things). Development in that area has been stalled due to a lot of reasons, lighting, endangered species, noise, etc.

I mean yes, most of the La Cantera development is close to Camp Bullis, but I think the Ikea literally backed right in to Camp Bullis as planned.

Until that whole Camp Bullis thing gets resolved I don't think we'll get an Ikea, at least not at the Rim/La Cantera. And boy, do I want one closer than Round Rock..I really need a new duvet!

Y'all do know that IKEA has a website, right? You can "shop," purchase, and ship any item you need. (Of course, I understand the difference between hands-on shopping and web, but if it's a question of driving to Round Rock or Houston vs. sitting at home...)

of course. But that store is like the best adventure ever. And it'd be great to be able ot go on that adventure closer to home.

Oh, I completely agree. It's just that so many folks complain about not getting one of these or those in SA when the company offers a website. In my mind, it would be different if no online ordering was available (say, perhaps a TJ's).

Ikea's shipping is astronomical! I wanted to order a small cabinet...cost all of $125 and less than 30 pounds. They wanted $220 for shipping.

Well, if you wouldn't ask for diamond-crusted white glove shipping, it wouldn't be so much! I think I've heard about their shipping costs in a negative light before. I'm not sure why, but they used to procure local shipping companies (or even couriers) for in-town and short haul deliveries...

Actually, not every item available in stores is available on their website.
