But luckily for us, former employees have shared a few secrets and tips to make your experience much calmer – first by visiting on a weekday.

Former colleagues also advise against arriving at store opening time, reports Sun Online.

Instead, try to get there an hour or two after opening time for a stress-free and leisurely shopping experience.

And if you are looking for a good deal, Ikea sales are very tempting.


Sale items can also be found online, so it’s worth checking the website before visiting your local branch.

You can also consult the bargain counter or the “As is” section.

However, if you are watching your pennies, avoid the “Open Wallet” section of the store.

While the area is full of small items, there are things you might need like new towels that will increase the purchase bill.

It’s worth making a list of the things you actually need so that you can browse an Ikea store without buying more than you need.

It’s also good to allow yourself time to find the items you want in the warehouse at the end of your trip.

Ex-workers recommend around an hour, depending on what you plan to buy on your trip.

And we know how difficult it can be to navigate the huge stores.

So remember, the next time you’re in an Ikea store, there are some shortcuts you can use to save a lot of time.

Also, if you ever feel tired after an Ikea store, did you know you can nap on the furniture?

According to a former worker, the pillows on the beds are exchanged once a month at her store in Texas, United States.

The coworker spoke to online magazine Mental Floss as she revealed how customers are supposed to try the products.

But just be warned when you find yourself lying on one of the beds, as other guests have reportedly done the same.

Meanwhile, if you’re wondering about the perks, Ikea’s holiday gifts can range from electronics to airline tickets.
