BYOF IKEA 2012On Saturday, January 14th, IKEA North America is celebrating ‘friends’ and is hosting an event designed to ‘reward IKEA loyalists, and their friends, with perks, activities and giveaways.’

Due to circumstances beyond our control, we will not be able to attend this fun event at our local IKEA Woodbridge, but we want you to go and tell us all about it! (p.s. there are massages involved…)

IKEA Bring Your Own Friends Day

From the press release:

Friends can visit the BYOF tab on the IKEA Facebook page to RSVP for the event. While there, they can print offers for a free blue bag, free breakfast, and buy-one-get-one lunch in-store on BYOF Day. Users also can chose their “IKEA Shopping Team” and invite their Facebook friends to join them with customizable invites. For each friend invited, IKEA will donate $1 to Save the Children, up to $50,000.

“At IKEA, we are always looking for another way to improve the lives of our customers,” says Marty Marston, Product Public Relations Manager, IKEA U.S. “BYOF Day has been designed with feedback from IKEA fans in mind and is dedicated to those fans and their friends. It’s full of the unique IKEA experiences shoppers have told us they want more of.”
