You can test drive a car, why not the furniture at Ikea?

Many shoppers at the Sweden-based home improvement chain's Beijing store like to take cat naps on the furniture, and employees used to look the other way. But now Ikea staff have had enough

The store is said to be implementing a new rule -- no sleeping while shopping, according to a Curbed post.

The article said that nobody is apparently heeding the ban, with shoppers continuing to kick off the shoes and sprawl out for a little shut-eye while shopping.
