Libby Antkowiak, who transferred from the IKEA store in Chicago, takes down measurements for a room at the new Tempe IKEA on Wednesday.
The big day is here for Swedish furniture fans across the Valley.

IKEA, near Interstate 10 and Warner Road, opens its doors for the first time today at 9 a.m.

IKEA fans have been eagerly waiting outside the megastore for its opening and the opportunity to win prizes; the first person in line wins $1,500 in IKEA furniture and accessories featured on the front cover of the IKEA catalog, and the first 100 adults will get a chair.

But ASU women's basketball head coach Charli Turner Thorne -- who has given birth in the middle of three of her eight seasons at ASU -- never prefers to take the easy way out. Thus, her Sun Devils will roll up their sleeves and get dirty with some of the better competition available Thursday and Friday at the four-team Women's Sports Foundation Classic in Baton Rouge, La.
