Ikea Discontinues Popular Shelf And Internet Goes Crazy

Ikea Discontinues Popular Shelf And Internet Goes Crazy

A lot of people got upset when they heard Ikea was discontinuing a popular shelf... especially vinyl collectors who loved the shelving unit because it was perfect for storing record albums, and when Ikea announced they were getting rid of Expedit, social media blew up with complaints.

There was even a Facebook page set up for people to vent.

But Ikea says not so fast -- it's just coming out with a replacement that has the same interior dimensions - so it still fits records - but uses less wood.

Ikea uses 1% of the world's wood supply in its furniture, and the new shelving unit shaves some wood off the outer edges - which can add up to a lot of trees.
