A year after announcing a location in Antioch, Ikea has pulled out of its plans to build a store in Middle Tennessee.

Nashville did not take kindly to the news.

People took to their preferred social media platforms to lament the cancellation of the Swedish furniture store.

Some were a little more diplomatic, mentioning the Ikea stores within a few hours of Nashville and cheekily referencing the process of actually building their furniture.

District 26 Metro Councilman Jeremy Elrod was quick to point out the development happening in the neighborhood even without Ikea coming.

Of course, there were more than a handful of people ready for their helping of Swedish meatballs that will now have to find an alternative.
