Is IKEA becoming a place for senior romance? | Updated: 2016-10-21 10:06

Editor's note: A notice at Ikea Shanghai has been shared widely among netizens on Chinese social media. It states that the store's cafeteria now requires customers to order food before sitting down in cafeteria seats. The policy is in response to an elderly blind dating group that occupies seats for a long time, consuming only their own food, brought from home. Sad news for elderly lonely hearts in Shanghai: they can no longer look for love in Ikea. Do you support IKEA's new regulation? China Daily readers share their opinions with us.

The elderly are harmless. What wrong are they doing? They are lonely and are probably hoping to find some company again. If anything, the store should practice empathy and at least sympathize with these old people.
