ABSTRACT
The article reports that Ikea AB has lost a High Court battle to build its first store in Greater Manchester because the planned store was 'too big for Stockport.' The proposed £30m store, submitted on September 24, 1999, would have created 600 jobs and almost eliminated unemployment in the neighbouring area of Brinnington. However,the application has been a source of contention between Ikea and John Prescott, deputy prime minister, who blocked the planning application twice after two independent planning inquiries said that the plans were unsatisfactory.
