No meatballs!

IKEA had warned a number of changes would be in place, including limited amounts of people in the shop at any one time. The store is also only allowing one adult and child per household.

In addition, Holly pointed out these people wouldn’t even get Ikea’s famous meatballs at the end of their shopping trip!

Some people arrived at 5am to queue before the stores opened at 9am.
