Customers are forced to spend the night in IKEA after getting snowed in

Six customers and two dozen employees were forced to spend the night in a IKEA store after heavy snowfall hit Denmark.

Up to 12 inches of snow fell, trapping the customers and staff in the Aalborg store, so they were unable to get home.

But rather than attempting to walk back through the snow, customers and staff were given the opportunity to live for one night in the store’s inviting furniture showrooms.

Store manager Peter Elmrose said ’We slept in the furniture exhibitions and our showroom on the first floor, where we have beds, mattresses and sofa beds.

He said customers were able to pick the exact bed they were thinking of buying and try it out, and they had all spent the night eating and watching TV, saying it went ‘super well’, and the night was ‘all fun’.
