The most interesting thing is who exactly would have to make the call Omaha!
It's not easy to find out who owns Ikea.

Excerpt from Wikipedia:
"The ownership of Inter IKEA Systems is exceedingly complicated and,
ultimately, uncertain. Inter IKEA Systems is owned by Inter IKEA Holding,
a company registered in Luxembourg. Inter IKEA Holding, in turn, belongs
to an identically named company in the former Netherlands Antilles that
is run by a trust company based in Curaçao. In 2009, the company in
Curaçao was liquidated. The company responsible for this liquidation
traces back to the Interogo Foundation in Liechtenstein..."
and so on.
