IKEA's store opening in Neihu attracted huge crowds on the 28th.
Of course it's more convenient. You can buy everything you need at the same time.
I heard the store is really big. I just wanted to look at the eating area. (Do you feel like the traffic is really bad?) That's to be expected. You can't prevent that.
The head of IKEA Taiwan says the Neihu store is committed to environmental protection. Ko Wen-je also said he wants to promote the sharing economy, which includes furnished public housing rentals. The street the store is located on is home to numerous big box stores, including Costco and Carrefour. Weekend traffic congestion is therefore concerning to Ko.
I'm very worried about Neihu traffic. Will the store opening (make it worse)?
In the future, we hope visitors can use Xinhu Second Road to get to Xingai Road before turning on to Xinhu First Road to reach our parking lot. We have 540 parking spaces and an additional 232 for scooters.
Deputy Taipei City Mayor Huang Shan-shan says the Department of Transportation will draw up a traffic plan and IKEA has also agreed to operate shuttle buses.
民眾 林女士表示：「聽說賣場很大，看看吃的地方。（會不會覺得這個交通很塞？) 那一定的啊，免不了的，一定會塞。」
