Are Ikea's Billy bookcase better

Recommended Posts

than the ones I can buy at Walmart or Target? I need 4 tall bookshelves. I can deal with not overloading them but they have to handle being full. I have one Target shelf, but it's for craft supplies and it never has to handle the weight of a full shelf of books. Just trying to figure out if it's worth the hour drive to Ikea in the long run:)

I have 6 bookcases in my schoolroom that make up 2 corner units, and I have 2 bookcases in my kitchen for a pantry. They look nice and are very sturdy - I have no worries about excess weight on the shelves. I would love to use the doors on them in the schoolroom, but my large notebooks hang over so the doors wouldn't work. That is my only complaint.
