    Ikea bans in-store hide and seek craze

    Home furnishing store Ikea has clamped down on an adult hide and seek craze that's been sweeping Europe. Apparently, hundreds of people with nothing better to do at the weekends are descending and spending all day hiding and not buying.

    More than 32,000 signed up to play at the Eindhoven store in the Netherlands.

    Ikea says it can't ensure customers' safety if it doesn't even know where they are.

    I guess it is good to see people get off their phones for a little while. Maybe Ikea could have them sign a waiver ,like they do when you leave your kids there.
