A stampede at a north London branch of Ikea resulted in six people being taken to hospital. Even more amazing is the fact (buried deep within the article) that three people died at the opening of an Ikea in Saudi Arabia last year. The Guardian's Space editor (as in domestic space, not outer space) reckons none of this is surprising as Ikea treats its customers so badly. I've been regularly traipsing around the Moore Park *Supercentre recently (on the neverending search for a new couch) and I can attest to the fact that 'Ikea' is synonymous with 'chaos' (and terrible sofas) and checkout queues seem to be lengthening by the month.
*I can't bear to replicate the official spelling of 'supa'.
