IKEA Malaysia And Singapore Sell 'Alamak' Bags After Accidentally Printing Typo On Them
Mistakes happen. Sometimes they really shouldn't. But they do. What sets you apart is how you handle a mistake.
IKEA recently made a boo-boo.
Their KLAMBY reusable bags were printed with a website typo.
Facebook user Alicia Cho spotted them at the store in Singapore and posted a photo on Friday, 15 January.
Instead of www.IKEA.com.sg, the bags are missing the letter 'm'.
In case you missed it:
And apparently, the same typo was made on the bags selling at Malaysia's outlets too:
Instead of tossing them all out, defeating the purpose of saving the environment, the company owned up to the mistake and decided to sell the bags for a cheap price
The sign at the store wrote, "KLAMBY. Limited Unique Alamak. At IKEA, it's ok to make a mistake. We printed the wrong website address on the KLAMBY re-usable bag but because it's re-usable, we won't scrap them. They're limited edition and they won't be back!"
Flawed or not, the bags still had their own photoshoot for the website just like any other regular bag
