According to The Sun, store manager Peter Elmose told the local newspaper: “We slept in the furniture exhibitions and our showroom on the first floor, where we have beds, mattresses and sofa beds.”

Adding that on a more positive note, people were able to “pick the exact bed they always have wanted to try.”

Employees from the toy shop opposite IKEA were also stuck and were forced to stay the night too, although it did look like a lot of fun…

The toy shop manager Michelle Barrett said: “It’s much better than sleeping in one’s car. It has been nice and warm and we are just happy that they would let us in.”

And it seems there were no bad vibes despite the situation being more than a little inconvenient…

“We just laughed at the situation, because we will probably not experience it again,” Barrett added.
