In the News: Ikea is coming!

As all the locals know, St. Augustine is a great place to live. In this part of my site, I share news articles from around the nation where our fair city has been featured. Have you heard the latest?!? The buzz right now is not about St. Augustine… it’s about what’s coming to Jacksonville.


Everybody is talking about IKEA!!! There are currently 4 Ikea stores in Florida:

  1. Orlando
  2. Tampa
  3. Ft. Lauderdale
  4. Miami

Ikea just announced that their 5th Florida store will be coming to Jacksonville and I can’t wait! I went to the Orlando store for the first time last May. Did you know they give out baby hammocks at the door? har har – the shopping bag was baby Wesley sized! Check him out!

      My first visit was 15 years ago in New York. Since then, I’ve only been to the Orlando one once… can’t wait to get to know IKEA better! ~Allie O
