There was an early holiday present for 12,400 Ikea employees in the United States Tuesday morning.
Bicycles for all.
The brand was not disclosed, nor the cost - after all, it is a gift - but the bicycles were made specifically for Ikea employees, to thank them for "great results and great team work," said company spokeswoman Mona Liss.
"It has been a good year for Ikea US (and Ikea Global as well)," Liss wrote in an e-mail. Ikea's U.S. headquarters is in Conshohocken.
Giving employees bicycles also "supports a healthy lifestyle and everyday sustainable transport," she said.
The silver bikes have a yellow, white and blue stripe, and are all-terrain and unisex.
