Denmark snowstorm forces people to spend night in IKEA
COPENHAGEN, Denmark – An IKEA showroom turned into a vast bedroom as six customers and about two dozen employees were stranded by a snowstorm and spent the night in the store, sleeping in the beds that are usually on show.
Up to 12 inches of snow fell, trapping the customers and employees when the department store in Aalborg closed on Wednesday evening.
“We slept in the furniture exhibitions and our showroom on the first floor, where we have beds, mattresses and sofa beds,” store manager Peter Elmose told the Ekstra Bladet tabloid. People could “pick the exact bed they always have wanted to try.”
Elmose said they spent the evening watching television and eating, adding it went “super well. It’s been a good night. All fun.”
