I had this dream long ago-

I remember talking to Abner Orick about trying to lure IKEA to Dayton- I thought the McCalls printing site off 35W at James H. McGee would be a great location.

For IKEA- they would be an hour from Columbus and Cincinnati- and 2 hours to Indianapolis- a great market for a destination retailer.

Came across this site:http://www.verybigdesign.com/ikea/
which is dedicated to bringing IKEA to OHIO.
