IKEA Is Having an Epic Birthday Party Next Weekend and We Want In
It’s hard to believe, but the Swedish retailer known for always-modern, modular design actually has quite a few years under its belt! IKEA turns 75 next weekend (August 18-19), and in celebration, they’re throwing a huge, nationwide party. Want an invite? Stop obsessing over that new catalog and listen up: All you have to do is be an IKEA FAMILY member (i.e. the store’s free membership program) and you’ll unlock access to tons of activities, party snacks, and of course, prizes.
IKEA’s 48 locations throughout the U.S. will be participating in some capacity, meaning you can pop to your local store to get in on the action. But you better get there early because the first 75 IKEA FAMILY members at each store on Saturday, August 18 will receive a $20 IKEA gift card, and there are opportunities to win even bigger — ten families per store will randomly receive a $75 gift card and one grand prize winner will get $750! Of course, there’s more to the party than winning prizes. Games, crafts, and other activities will be on offer for kids and adults of all ages, and since no party is complete without some eats, samplings of IKEA Restaurant drinks and snacks will be on offer. (We expect Swedish meatballs are a must, right?)
In addition, the celebration weekend is one of your first chances to shop IKEA’s GRATULERA collection, which reissues the most iconic furniture and accessory silhouettes from each decade of design. What better way to appreciate 75 years of IKEA than picking up a limited-edition piece from its most historic moments?
