If the rumor becomes fact the building could be used as a replacement for the Moffett Field blimp hanger if it's torn down.

If that is true, I call that a good start. Ikea was generating too much traffic and negatively impacting the quality of life for PA residents. Now we must work to shut down Home Depot in EPA, Best Buy/Bed Bath and Beyond/REI in MV and the Whole Foods in Lod Altos.
These places were built without the consultation and input of the PA city council and NIMBYists.

I don't believe it. If it's a rumor, it was started by a disgruntled employee, or the particular species of whining grinch that is common in these parts.
IKEA has RARELY closed a store. It has NEVER closed a store so soon after opening. By all reports, the store is a big success.
If I'm wrong, it might be a bice place for an inside auto mall. :)) Seems funny at first thought, but it's certainly big enough to fill the bill.
Anyway, don't count on it...
