I am hoping someone can help me out locating an item I need from IKEA. :goodvibes

We drove to IKEA Schaumburg this last weekend so I could use several gift cards I've accumulated over the last year to for some items for our home. One of them was the KVARTAL triple track panel system. They had it displayed on a standard sliding glass door but when we got home we realized that they actually had put 2 of them together to create the correct length.:sick: We even looked to make sure it appeared to be one piece but didn't realize the connectors are on the inside of the track so it appears seamless.:headache: We assumed the track slid out to expand to the correct length.

I have tried Ebay to locate the item but none are posted. I called IKEA and just my luck it's not available through their catalog/online store and no stores will ship to me even if I prepay for the item and shipping when it's in the store right now.

Does anyone know anywhere else I could possibly order one? Maybe someone knows of someone who has an online store etc.? It's about a 4 1/2 hour drive so I simply can't make that trip back just for a $20 item. I could just cry I'm so mad.

If I don't get another track, I'll be out the entire cost for the system/panels etc. I know it's my own fault for not checking, but ugh...it's so frustrating that they don't note "2 tracks required for this display" on the patio door at the store.

I have tried to think about someone I know that lives even close to Chicago (or ANY Ikea for that matter) to see if I could pay them to go buy it and ship it to me, but I don't know anyone close.:sad2:

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.:goodvibes

Call the Bolingbrook store and see if they have it. If they do, I can pick it up and send it to you.

I was going to offer to pick up at Long Island. But I guess I'm not needed now. :yay::yay:

Thanks everyone! How lucky you all are to live so close to IKEA. I can swing only about 1 trip a year if I'm lucky to IKEA since the closest one is about 4 1/2 hours away. Maybe that's a good thing...:rolleyes1
