When it comes to trying to make the shopping experience easier, IKEA is the go-to retailer. In addition to its longtime kids' creche/play areas, last year it launched "Manland", a holding pen for bored men - and now it's even offering shoppers a place to park their pooch. According to Lost At E Minor, Ikea Germany has launched "dog parking lots" where pets can chill out on astro-turf beds with a cool, er, water bowl. No video games (yet) but we could see how this idea could evolve. What's next, a spa for women?
