I am looking to get a new Blekinge White cover for my Ektorp sofa. I know that here in Canada it is $179. I happened to look at the Ikea USA site today and am blown away by the price difference; see for yourself.
Yeah, a $130 difference! Since the Canadian dollar is at or close to par with the US dollar, for the same amount I could purchase 3.65 covers in the good ol’ U. S. of A.
Unfortunately, there are no Ikeas close to border cities around me. Canton, MI is the closest. Hmmm…maybe someone can ship one to me ? :) Even if shipping is $30, that is still a far cry from $179! Anyone?
Woo hoo! UPDATE:
A generous reader has offered to bring one to me, right in my city! She (Denise) is travelling from Texas and flies into the airport that is a 15 minute drive from my house. I am overwhelmed that a complete stranger would do something so kind for me. A thousand thank yous to Denise.
