Ikea vending machine offers kitchen tools
Ikea has installed a vending machine at a Stockholm subway station to sell small kitchen items such as a garlic press, an egg slicer and other tools, according to Ehandel.com, a retail site. The machine is located near a new Ikea kitchen products store.
The temporary store is about 4,300 square feet and includes a showroom with seven display kitchens, according to a press release from Ikea Sweden.
The vending machine, which will be up for a few weeks, encourages consumers to "get a kitchen to go with their garlic press."
The machine accepts payment cards.
