The Ikea Mobile on Court Street

Ikea Mobile

By now, there are probably about seven people in the entire city that don’t know that Ikea is opening in Red Hook, and five of them are under three years of age. Ikea’s advertising and PR campaign has been so complete–and every media outlet and blog has been so happy to help cover the pending opening–that few retail openings in recent memory have been as widely covered and hyped. Here’s the Ikea mobile, which we found parked on Court Street yesterday evening with flashers blinking and then saw being driven around.

    So, f-g IKEA can now park its gas guzzling promo garbage in a fire lane? That IS a firehydrant, no?

    I hate IKEA. I hate Brooklyn.
