IKEA have announced plans to discontinue their Expedit shelving range.

The range has proved immensely popular with record collectors, as it’s dimensions make it perfect for storing records.

The news that the Expedit line is to be discontinued – at least in Germany, for the time being – has prompted the formation of a Facebook page, which has received over 10,000 ‘likes’ so far.

IKEA have revealed that the Expedit line is to be replaced by a new line, Kallax. However, concerns about Kallax’ suitability among the record collecting community have been aired on the 35hz message board, who claim the dimensions of the Kallax range are thinner than its predecessor, and arguably less likely to satisfactorily support the weight of vinyl.
