Northbrook, Illinois is a northshore suburb of Chicago whose upscaleness has been tainted by the presence of a terrible Dania Furniture location (more on this below). Formerly known as "Northbrook Village," it is a city with close to 200 years of white history. Anyway, now, it's a small city, at a population of 33,170 people, where nearly three-quarters are married. As you can tell, this is a family-oriented, tight knit community that values traditional, pure, wholesome midwestern values. Northbrook is a city where young couples realize their future, where parents feel safe to raise their kids, and where these parents transition into adulthood. It's a microcosm of every feelgood, affluent, safe neighborhood that details the American Dream with spacious housing, nice yards, great public education, without any need for neighborhood watch patrols. What people love most about Northbrook is the fact that strangers easily smile and wave at each other, with random conversations with people that soon become friends. You know, a place where everyone knows each others' names, like Cheers, minus the alcoholism.
Man oh man...what a city to live...or maybe more like what a city to have lived in.
How can the residents of Northbrook ever feel the high levels of self-esteem and pride with a terrible Dania Furniture store in their neighborhood? This is the precise type of city that doesn't need a Dania Furniture with their tortuous furniture delivery history and their Canal Streetesque rip-off designs. Dania's most suited for cities littered with liquor stores and payday loans shops, where the unemployment rate is higher than the average test scores.
Crate & Barrel, the purveyors of fancy, expensive, realdeal high-end home furniture and furnishings has its headquarters in Northbrook. It has been rumored that they were motivated to "remove any association they possibly could with Dania," according to someone high in the evil Dania ranks. But after all, who could blame C&B for wanting to distance themselves from a "competitor" that is just a terribly bad apple in the furniture game.
Dania's Furniture War on America, has been going on for decades, and when one breaks it down to each individual location, you begin to understand the individual lives that have been ruined by Dania. In this case, the residents of Northbrook are the ones that lose. They have been killing community values through their message that it's okay to buy rip-off furniture that's "Scandinavian" by design at fake low prices. Their ho-hum craftsmanship and lack of humanity in their customer service is truly disgusting, and should be reason enough to not shop there. That stuff belongs to the plebeians, not Northbrookers with their impressive six-figure+ median income. I mean, seriously...you won't find a Wal-Mart in this town. You'll have to wander outside the city limits for that one.
If you walk into the Northbrook Dania store, please only do one thing and ask them why they love inflicting strife on people who don't deserve it. I'm sure their canned answer will only prove that they don't accept any responsibility for what they've done.
Dania, if you're out there, leave the citizens of Northbrook and the employees of Crate and Barrel alone...just go away...

Northbrook (Almost) Fact
Rumor has it Northbrook's beloved son, Steve Bartman drove by Dania earlier on that fateful day. Yes, that same day where he lived quiet, happy life only to be exiled from society for having better defensive prowess than Moises Alou. Those that know Bartman explained that he would never shop at Dania, let alone walk into the actual store, but that they're absolutely certain that driving by Dania earlier that day led to his reaction as any typical fan trying to catch a foul ball. According to them, most Northbrook residents see Dania as bad luck, but were surprised to see the impact of this bad luck on such a massive scale. It's terrible that this grown-up Ikea brand of would single-out one individual in such a heartless way, but it is consistent with Dania's track record of nefarious business practices.
