It's a F&P, so you'd better get used to having it out of action while it gets repaired on a regualr basis. (We've had these down here in Australia for years, and they've got a horrible reputation.)

[IKEA] positions outlets far from city centers, where taxes are low and commuting costs high—the average IKEA customer drives 50 miles round-trip.

The problem with making blanket claims like the above - which is a blatant lie in both Australian cities I've lived in - is that I then regard the rest of the assertions as rubbish as well.

"Stick to reality" is a good idea for articles, otherwise it's clearly - as in this example - simply propaganda.
