    you seriously go to IKEA ? essential enough? check inside the package just incase there is covid hiding

      Eh, ikea far more essential than some other shops open out here, lots of wfh needs or replacing broken necessary homewares etc

          Probably one of the few areas that actually benefits from browsing a physical showroom/store - office chairs for instance are very individual

        •  

          price is still $12.99 online though

        •  

          IKEA has stopped online delivery in NSW, at least when I checked on Tuesday.

        People may need those things but pretty poor form from IKEA though because a) their stores are designed for browse and try and not allow you to get out easily after getting what you want. b) their in-store variable pricing which means you need to physically enter C) the tax they put on for click and collect is ridiculous

      yep, went there to get spare parts for my broken sofa and stopped by for some batteries.

      •  

        shouldn't it be:
        'yep, went there to get spare parts for my broken sofa and thats it.'

        • +12 votes

          come on, give the man a break. He went for an essential item, saw the batteries, got some for himself, thought it was a good deal, thought it was worth posting here, and so he did.

          If you don't need to go to IKEA, don't go just for this. But if someone is going to IKEA Rhodes already for something else that they think is essential, they'll grab this on their way to the counter.

          Yes, we all need to abide by the rules, but gosh, you guys are harsh. He saw a deal and posted it! Leave him alone.

            @Mr Frodo: thanks. exactly what you described.
            in retrospect, i should just keep this to myself. didnt expect to cause quite a stir.

            definitely followed the entry rules, masked up, checked in, went in and out for less than 15 minutes.

              Thank goodness this delta variant wears a nice wristwatch to know it should leave you alone.

      That's why NSW is at whre it is. Apparently common sense is not so common.

      Cant believe my local smoke store and bottle shop are still open.

      •  

        The bottle shop and tobacconist should always remain open. There would be a literal health and public order crisis if alcoholics were unable to access liquor and smokers/vapers had to go cold turkey.

        Jewellers and Hot Dollar should not be open.

        Clothing stores, Kmart and Ikea should be open for click and collect only, preferably a completely contactless direct-to-boot service at parcel pick-up locations.

          Well, some needs to look after their mental state with retail therapy. I guess that's why LV Gucci etc are open.

          I indeed see why Gladys over estimated what common sense mean to the general public.

            @vocadata: I'm not saying there isn't some creative tax accounting by big business, but to publish an article comparing tax-paid to TURNOVER is just stupidity. Tax is paid on profit, not revenue ffs.

    I think it's essential depending on what you're getting. A few people I know are getting desks or chairs to support WFH (somehow hadn't gotten one yet). Going in to re-model your kitchen, not so.

      Click n collect? Nope, people can go in and sit on chairs that 2000 other people potentially sat on.

    Could be argued batteries essential for charging remote to power tv in order to stay up to date with covid restrictions.

    • +1 vote

      By that logic, couches are essential too. Plus, don't want a bad back from being stuck watching TV for new updates over months.

      So we should allow 2000 people to go through and test the couch.

      Click n collect. Don't allow any shopper into any stores ffs

      peoples idea in their heads is if i exercise my freedom and rights to be out and about it will force the government not to enforce and extend lockdowns. they are just shooting themselves in the foot. the more they flaut the restrictions the longer the lockdowns will be.

      stop finding loopholes in the restrictions. its for everyones benefit.

    I've always considered essential to be food, shelter and (vital) medicine). The people shopping for clothes and furniture can keep wearing the same clothes and using the same furniture they have now. And just be grateful that the crisis of this generation involves sitting at home eating junk food and watching videos. Not fighting and killing in trenches.

    Looks like they are clearing these to make way for the new (teal?) ones with same specs but cheaper. Whats the difference?

  •  

    I've been wanting to go in since last deal was posted at 8.99 just b4 lockdown. I had since speculated prices on discounted items would keep dropping at places we're not supposed to visit, and here we are at $5. Shame we have no self- control, they may have been $1 if we'd held out till after lockdown… just wish my fire alarms took AAs and they'd be essential ;(

    IKEA open is Sydney is just insane. WTF is wrong with the gov't? Not much point having a lockdown unless you do it right.
    Any 'essentials' could be delivered, or C&C outdoors.

    This is why the rest of Australia is building a border wall.

      But you cant block nsw vic forever? And when its open you will have removalists coming over….
