Sick of the number of snoozing customers, IKEA China recently announced a new rule: no more sleeping in or on sample furniture. However, IKEA staff had have major issues enforcing the new rule.

Beijing Youth Daily reported that they checked out the IKEA store at Xihongmen in Beijing. They wrote that were still customers sleeping in and on half the beds and sofas in the store. Customers had even taken off their shoes and crawled under the quilts for a snooze. The majority of store sleepers were children taking an afternoon nap.

A middle-aged women in the store told the Beijing Youth Daily that when she got tired while shopping in the nearby mall, she would head to IKEA to take a rest. She said she really liked how comfortable the beds at IKEA were. She added that her friends also liked to take naps at IKEA, and that the number of sleeping customers shouldn't have a “significant impact,” on IKEA sales.

Beijing Youth Daily also came across a young mother sitting beside a crib. Her son was fast asleep inside. She said that she had come to shop at IKEA and her son was tired so she let him take a nap. “When you go out shopping with small children, they get tired easily,” she said.

An IKEA staff member said that the new rule did ban customers from sleeping on furniture, but most of the sleepers are children and elderly. Another staff member said that customers just don't listen when they're told about the new rule. “You see so many people sleeping, it's too hard to control.”

It doesn't matter how many photos you show. To get even 1% of the Chinese population, you would need 14 million Chinese sleeping on the IKEA beds....are there that many people sleeping on the show beds?....I don't think so. If you want to paint a picture of Mainland Chinese being selfish, disgusting, lazy, inconsiderate slobs, that's your prerogative. But these people are still a very small minority. How about the Chinese people who are considerate, why don't you ever mention them on here?
