5 things to know if you’re heading to IKEA’s Indianapolis-area opening

Child care is available. The store's Småland is a supervised play area, which looks like Swedish farmhouse and forest, so parents can drop off their children while they shop.
The guesswork is done for you. The store has furniture laid out in house room- and apartment-sized arrangements.
You'll get parking help. Staff will help customers navigate through the 1,000 parking spaces.
Leave the tape measurer at home. Customers can pick up paper measuring tapes at the entrance or throughout the store.
Save room for Swedish meatballs. The store has a 325-seat restaurant in the center that is normally serving $2 breakfasts 1 hour before the store opens and also offers lunch and dinner, which include the company's famous meatballs.
