So, which IKEA should you go to? We've broken down the decision...
New Haven makes a good case, but we have to give the edge to Paramus. It's a bit closer and in a stronger overall shopping area. But it is closed on Sunday and the traffic around there can be fierce. It's a narrow victory.

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
