If you were looking for an Expedit for your scrap room, get one now before it is gone.

Where did you hear this? I was just at Ikea on Sunday and it didn't show on clearance and there's nothing about it on their website.

If you Google it, you will find something about it in Germany. Folks are blogging about it as records (vinyl LPs) fit it them and they are mourning the loss of their LP storage.

There was something about a replacement product that was not as thick as the Expedit.

Too bad, I love my expedits. They are great shelving at a very reasonable price. Perfect dimensions for scrappers.

That really stinks. I was hoping to get them this summer.

They're replacing it with something similar, thank goodness. Though not the 5x5, which is my favorite. Here's an article:

It's to save on the total use of wood. The outer edge will not be as wide but the internal dimensions of the shelves will be the same.

The new system will be called Kallax and it's nice but I prefer the Expedit.

I've noticed other dept stores are starting to sell similar shelving, even Walmart.

I bought a similar unit at Target about seven years ago, but it's not quite deep enough for my albums - someday I'll actually be near an Ikea and get a chance to get the good stuff.

I found out last weekend when I went to pick up my drawers and doors. I wanted black to match my unit but they told me they were discontinued. I literally almost threw a fit in the middle of the store. What to do!!!??? They had zero drawers left and only the mirrored doors. I grabbed up 8 of them and was able to find some beautiful baskets. But man did my blood pressure go up!
