Singles are winners at IKEA this Valentine’s Day!

Bangkok--14 Feb--Grayling (Thailand)
Special treatment and sweet treats for all singles at IKEA Bangna this 14th February. Couples need not apply.
Saint Valentine's Day, or just Valentine's Day, is a holiday observed on February 14 and originally honored early Christian martyrs named Saint Valentine.

Over the years the focus has shifted to become a day on which friends express their secret love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards, electronic cards or emails. Today it has become a major commercial event with hotels, restaurants, resorts, jewelries, flower shops and others doing their best to cash in on the event, so that not everyone feels the wings of romance but rather the breeze and sound of banknote counting machines working overtime.

At IKEA Thailand we believe it is long overdue to recognize that large parts of the population are being unfairly overlooked on this day. We are of course talking about the singles. We want to show all singles how we value them and recognize their importance in society. After all, without singles in the first place, Cupid would be unemployed.

To show our heart beats extra beats for them this Valentine’s day, the IKEA Bangna store offers all singles the opportunity to pay 4,100THB for the iconic IKEA KLIPPAN sofa frame and get back 50% of the price (2,050THB) in IKEA gift vouchers ready to use for anything in the store. All that is required to get this sweet deal is to come to the IKEA cashier, claim singlehood, and show a phone number from another single obtained that same day in the store.

Then take home your flat packed KLIPPAN sofa frame and (one of our many removable and washable covers) the same day and assembly it at home or let us help you arrange delivery and assembly at a reasonable cost.

To make it really easy to qualify, and help singles be even greater winners this Valentine’s day, we also offer all singles free drinks and the legendary Swedish Princess Cake (in pretty pink marzipan) with their meals at specially reserved and decorated single tables in the restaurant. There, any singles

can meet other like-minded single sofa speculators to exchange telephone numbers with each other and secure our special offer. All that is needed for an extra sweet food deal is to tell the cashier in the IKEA restaurant the password: “I am single”.

So this Valentine’s Day we encourage all singles to come out, alone or with other singles or couples, and join us at IKEA for some well-deserved special treatment.
Of course, what the singles may do with that other single’s telephone number is none of our business - perhaps even help you get the KLIPPAN sofa home.
But a gentle warning!! Be careful how friendly you become. You may end up missing out on the possibility of participating in next year’s Valentine’s Day.
See you at IKEA Bangna on Tuesday, 14 February 2012, from 10 am to 10 pm (restaurant opens at 9.30am)
