PALMS — Get ready for big changes at the resort. Station Casinos plans to buy the resort for $312.5 million. The deal should be complete in the third quarter. On the restaurant side, that means the Culinary Union, which has been trying to organize workers there and has long clashed with Station, will have to negotiate a new deal. The deal follows Boyd Gaming’s plans to buy Aliante Casino in North Las Vegas for $380 million as well as two Cannery casinos for $230 million. [Vegas Inc]

SOUTHEAST — Ikea makes its debut on May 18, and already the store has plans for giveaways. During the first few days, shoppers can score an EKTORP sofa for each of the first 42 adults in line, and a POANG armchair for the next 100 visitors. Other highlights include a free mattress for the first 42 on Thursday, May 19, and free monthly meatball meals for a year to the first 42 on Friday, May 20. Be forewarned: Customers may begin lining up at 9 a.m. on Monday, May 16, 48 hours before the store’s opening at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, May 18. [EaterWire]

COSMOPOLITAN OF LAS VEGAS — Blue Ribbon Sushi & Grill gets set to close in the fall as Zuma comes in and takes over the sushi duties for the resort, and now Eric and Bruce Bromberg say construction on their new incarnation is set to start as soon as Zuma opens. Bruce Bromberg tells Vegas Seven his new concept should open in “the fourth quarter of 2016 or first quarter of 2017.” [VS]
