Six customers as well as around twenty employees spent the night in Ikea in Aalborg, Denmark. A snowstorm trapped them in the store.
The Ikea store in Aalborg, northern Denmark, turned on Wednesday in gigantic bedroom. Due to the snowstorm raging outside, customers and employees had to stay there. About 30 centimeters of white powder fell outside.
Driving on the roads was too dangerous. We slept on the exhibition furniture on the first floor, where we have beds, mattresses and pull-out sofas Peter Elmose, store manager, told Ekstra Bladet magazine.
The man admitted that the night spent in the store was “great fun” for both customers and employees. They spent the evening watching TV and eating snacks. Sellers from a nearby toy store also stayed overnight in Ikea.
It’s so much better than sleeping in your own car. It was nice and warm. We’re just happy they let us in Michelle Barrett, one of the toy store employees, admitted.
We just laughed at this situation because we probably won’t experience it anymore Barrett added.
Heavy snowfall has also paralyzed public transport in Aalborg. Due to canceled flights, more than 300 people were stuck in the terminal.
