It didn't take long for Windsor area residents to applaud IKEA's decision to move into the former Future Shop at Walker and Divison roads.

Some wondered what took so long. After all, London announced it's "pick-up store" back in May.

Others seemed to be shouting the news from the rooftops.

Some started to pen wish lists.

People immediately had a craving for IKEA's famous food. However, the Windsor location won't be a full-fledged IKEA.

The news might bring tears to people's eyes.

And, of course, there were IKEA monkey jokes. How could there not be?
