HOUSE OF IDEAS
THE LAST TIME Hyderabad went this happily brusque was when Baahubali was released three years ago. The launch of Ikea on August 9 was as much of a blockbuster smash hit, with a first day first hour excitement running wild with shoppers who thronged outside the mega home store since the early hours. The Ikea flavour has been fusing with the cityscape, with metro pillars featuring pictures of its products at temptingly low prices for weeks now. Similarly, Ikea-themed auto rickshaws have been doing the rounds and the giant digital clock at Hitec City counted down the launch. It is one thing to go home shopping and quite another to be part of the Ikea experience, with over 7,500 products displayed across a sprawling 4 lakh square feet store space that you can let yourself lose into. From the most affordable to the premium, everything is high quality and in an overwhelming variety. And to give rest to your aching feet after the shopping experience is the 1000-seater restaurant at the store, touted to be the biggest ever in the country.
