Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.
Our colleagues at Racked NYC are live blogging—with help from The Life Vicarious blogger Adam Robb—at the opening of an Ikea in Red Hook, Brooklyn, which involves tents, crazy weather, and freebies. It's just Ikea you say? Not in these parts. [Racked NYC]
