The new Ikea store is now open and I visited today, its a very easy commute for anyone living on the beach side or on the Mornington Peninsula. Not too bad for other areas as well. From the Peninsula, Frankston, Carrum etc take the Frankston Freeway to Springvale Road then Westall Road and the entrance is just before the Princes Highway on Westall Road. Lots of parking, huge store, great cafe area, child friendly areas etc. Back to the good old days before they closed the big one in Moorabbin. Harvey Norman, JB Hi Fi, Freedom and other stores will be opening there soon, one stop shop homemaker centre. Lot of people there today because just opened but it was ok and easy to get in and out.
