The Must Attend IKEA Event Of The Summer

IKEA Centiennial Back to School Event

By Vicki Little

At the end of the summer, post-vacation, sun-kissed families are going to trade in their swim suits and lazy days for pencils and alarm clocks. The busy schedules kick in, days start getting hectic. Homework and school supplies will start cluttering the kitchen table and bedrooms.

That is where IKEA comes in. Friday July 14th – Sunday July 16th, IKEA Centennial is holding a special IKEA College Life Your Way Event.

This event may be specialized for college students, but believe us – ANYONE will be able to benefit from the workshops they are offering. Each day of the long weekend is filled with events, workshops, incredible giveaways, and special offers that beat the typical back-to-school sales.

**BONUS** the first 250 people in the store each day will receive free IKEA products throughout the weekend! 

The deals are absolutely amazing, and if you have been thinking of decluttering and making a small space seem much larger (and more livable) you won’t want to miss this event. Further, it is the the perfect bonding weekend for you and your college-bound son or daughter. Seriously – you don’t even need to leave the store to eat, they have that covered as well! Let IKEA know you are coming, RSVP today!
