Conshohocken, PA, 2014-3-31 — /EPR Retail News/ — IKEA, the Life Improvement Store, invites consumers to join in celebrating the spring and the Easter holiday with an annual Swedish Easter Smörgåsbord known as Påskbord.

The traditional, all-you can eat buffet will be hosted in all IKEA Restaurants onFriday, April 11. Guests can enjoy an endless meal of classic Swedish food offerings such as Swedish meatballs with mashed potatoes, smoked salmon, Swedish ham, and much more. The cost of the buffet is $9.99 per person or $2.49 for kids 12 and under for IKEA FAMILY* members ($12.99 per person/$4.99 for kids 12 and under for non-IKEA FAMILY attendees).
