Generally located in the outskirts, IKEA is famous for its large-format stores sprawling over 400,000-500,000 sq ft. However, following its long term commitment to the state, the Swedish furniture giant has come up with city stores built on the lines of Paris, Moscow, Vienna and Shanghai stores. Notably, upon completion, this city store will become the second one of its kind in Mumbai as well.
After launching two flagship stores in Hyderabad and Navi Mumbai, IKEA had finally set its foot in Mumbai by opening India's first city store in Worli on December 9. Unlike the traditional big blue box stores of IKEA, this pack and parcel home furnishing centre is a compact space spanning over 80,000 sq ft. The aim behind establishing small-format stores is to suit compact urban spaces and offer the authentic IKEA experience and services to a wider customer base in the city.
