Celebrate Tampa Ikea's first birthday with discounts and free stuff

Leksvik Last May was a sweet month for home decor shopping in Tampa. First, we got Ikea. Then Crate & Barrel opened, too.

Time flies when you're busy buying accent pillows (and wine glasses, rugs, lamps, kitchen gadgets, etc). Thursday marks Ikea Tampa's first birthday! And if you checked out the grand opening last year, you know Ikea likes to celebrate big.

The first 100 visitors over age 18 on Thursday will receive a free Leksvik coffee table (a $119 value). The first 100 kids under age 10 get a free Barnslig Struts soft toy (a $4.99 value). There will also be free birthday cake all day.

On Friday, Saturday and Sunday (May 7-9), the first 100 visitors to the big box store will receive mystery envelopes containing an Ikea gift card or other prize.

Don't bother packing the tent. Die-hard Ikea fans are known to camp out for the early-bird freebies at grand openings, but this time around the store won't allow entry to its parking lot or lining up for the giveaways before 6 a.m.

All four days, the Tampa store will feature 30 to 70 percent off select products as part of its Birthday Blow Out sale. And you don't have to wake up before dawn for that. Click here for more details.
