Foreign Media Photograph Chinese People Loitering to Sleep at IKEA

2014 July 6, Beijing, foreign media reporters photographed Chinese people sleeping on the display sofas or beds at IKEA. According to reports, most of IKEA’s consumers in China come from the middle class, and among them, there is no shortage of customers who sleep in the showroom. To cater to Chinese consumer habits, the retailer doesn’t stop such behavior, and even indicates on some furniture an invitation for customers to lie down to experience [the furniture].

Comments from NetEase:
根本停不下來 [阿根廷球迷]:
From this we can see that our countrymen truly are very tired.
niubo1124 [加纳球迷]:
It seems Chinese people are all very tired, myself included. Even if I don’t do much during a day, I still feel tired.
顽皮猴0 [网易四川省成都市网友]:
Actually, they are not loitering to sleep, but instead loitering for the air conditioning. There are especially a lot of them during the summer!
斯坦福桥吟游诗人 [比利时球迷]:
Whose fault? If social welfare were just a little bit better, the ordinary common people wouldn’t care to exploit such petty advantage.
说好忘了曾经爱过的人 [德国球迷]:
The people of the capital live in an abyss of suffering, so what can they do?
