I can say that all IKEA stores are not built the same; in fact they all have their own quirks and layouts.
I frequent two stores in my area. In
, the store is two floors, with all parking uncovered. For those who know the area, the old Pirelli Tire building is in the parking lot (IKEA was unsuccessful in getting this building torn down when they constructed the store--it's a local landmark and an interesting architectural study). The store has place their AS IS department to the left of the registers. Also, the Swedish food mart is very small.
store is huge. It comes complete with its own two story parking garage, far more and larger displays (than those in New Haven) and a very cool feature--the travellator. One has to take the travellator down to the first floor of the garage. A travellator is similar to an airport people mover, but it locks into the wheels of your IKEA shopping cart to keep it steady for you while you ride down. AS IS is on the right of the registers in Stoughton, and it's smaller than New Haven's (although New Haven has never once had anything remotely interesting in it--at least when I've been there). Stoughton's food mart is an exceptional size, and stocks a wider variety than New Haven.
And I notice this is your 2nd post to our little forum...welcome!!! We're glad you've stopped in...stick around; there's a lot of great information here.

Thank you for these helps. Hoping to go on Monday and will see how same or different Atl is.I'm alsolearning the best way to shop and use my time and energy better. We spend the better time of the day there, have lunch, et. I'm going to see this time if I can buy something off the floor that I can't find in stock for weeks.
Yes, I found it this time, but quickly realized that even if I found something there, I would not be able to easily fit it into my car. So whatever discount I saved I would spend in having it delivered, unless it was something small. San
