I was an IKEA fan (from graduation to about age of 28). I am not a fan, but am still a customer for them
IKEA just opened a store in Shenzhen, at European City on April 6.
Hours of Operation: 10:00am to 22:00pm
Tel: (0755) 8602 2345
Address (English): No. 8188 Beihuan Dadao Nanshan District, Shenzhen (Off of Shahedong Rd. in the European City)
It has already entered Beijing (with two stores), Shanghai, Guangzhou and Chengdu.
IKEA is one example of successful foreign companies in China.
PS. IKEA’s second store in Shanghai will open in 2008 in Beicai – pretty close to where I live.
