SAN ANTONIO – IKEA has caught Fiesta fever for the first time.
The Swedish retailer has released a photo of its first-ever Fiesta medal, which pays tribute to burros and papel picado in its iconic blue and yellow hues.
They will be available to the public starting Monday at the official Fiesta Store. The medal will be free, but there is a limited supply available and they will be distributed on a first come, first served basis, one per person.
Originally, IKEA had said that the medals would be sold through the Fiesta store.
“We have since made the decision to give the medals to the San Antonio community, as our birthday gift to our customers,” says Diedre Goodchild, Store Manager of IKEA Live Oak, “we will make a separate donation directly to CASA so they can continue to do phenomenal work protecting our community’s children.”
She said the medals will not be sold at the IKEA store.
“At IKEA we believe children are the most important people in the world,” Janeli Castrejana, IKEA Live Oak Loyalty Manager, said in a news release. “We could think of no better way to celebrate our first medal and birthday than by giving back to the community and helping a great cause.”
