NORFOLK, Va. — To thank the teachers in the area ahead of the new school year, IKEA Norfolk is holding a Teacher Appreciation Event!

On Wednesday, August 14, the company will be giving away gifts to the first teachers in line. The first 100 teachers, who show a teacher ID or homeschool certification letter, will receive a free PLURING Hanging Storage. Also, all those in line with an IKEA FAMILY card, or who sign up in line, will receive a free IKEA FAMILY tumbler, watering can, and the new catalog. 

All of the teachers who are in line by 10:45 a.m. will also receive a voucher for a free Swedish American breakfast.

Throughout the day there will be activities including a teacher themed scavenger hunt (chance to win $75 gift card); two make and take workshops to decorate a mirror and a succulent pot at 10 am and 11:30 am while supplies last; three Enhance Your Classroom workshops at 10 and 11 am and 12 pm with demonstration displays will be raffled off to attendees; and up to 80 percent off in our As-Is Department. 

"We love teachers and teachers love IKEA," said IKEA Norfolk spokesman Michelle Stephenson. "We're excited to host teachers in our new store and show them some love."
