Dec. 9, 2010 at 1:35 PM

CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., Dec. 9 (UPI) -- A spokeswoman for Ikea's U.S. headquarters in Pennsylvania said 12,400 employees of the furniture stores received new bicycles as holiday presents.

Mona Liss, a spokeswoman for the Conshohocken headquarters, said the bicycles were awarded to the workers Tuesday as a thank-you for "great results and great team work," The Philadelphia Inquirer reported Thursday.

"It has been a good year for Ikea US (and Ikea Global as well)," Liss wrote in an e-mail message.

Liss said a bicycle gift also "supports a healthy lifestyle and everyday sustainable transport."

The company, which has its world headquarters in Sweden, did not disclose the cost or brand of the bicycles.
