Despite massive need for flat-pack furniture following the earthquake, Christchurch didn't manage to get an Ikea.* And there's yet no Ikea anywhere in New Zealand.
Last month, Christchurch people got mad that a Wendy's wanted to serve beer.
Meanwhile, Winnipeg's Ikea serves beer and wine.
* Trading on the iPredict market on whether there would be a Christchurch Ikea went as high as 18%. But Simon Bridges said we can't have iPredict any more, so I suppose there can't be a contract on whether we'll ever get an Ikea. So we're as bad as Manitoba on the predictions-market front now.
