I would like to order a reclining armchair from IKEA. Cost 329 euros.
Check on internet to see if it is available at Toulouse which is 2 1/2 hours' drive.
Only available to order, not available in shop.
BUT have to have home delivery which is another 175 euros.
Can I have it delivered to Toulouse store for collection?
Yes, but you have to go to the store and make the order.
Can't I do that over the phone? No have to go to the store.
So I can't order it on line or by phone to have it delivered to Toulouse. No.
So I have to drive 2 1/2 hours there to order, 2 1/2 hours back then 2 1/2 hours there to collect and 2 1/2 hours back??
Is there anyway round this problem (don't you want my bloody order)
And you can hear the gallic shrug down the phone line.
