Mumbai:IKEA, the world’s largest home furnishings retailer, said it will open a store in Navi Mumbai on December 18, its second door after it entered the country over two years ago.
The Swedish retailer said during COVID times, it is taking a number of extra precautions from its global best practices and relevant learnings from its Hyderabad operations. This includes initially having a cap on the number of visitors to the store through prior registration.
“We are very excited, as Mumbai is one of our priority markets in India. We have been present online in Mumbai since early 2019 and soon the many people of Mumbai will be able to shop at our fantastic IKEA store,” Peter Betzel, CEO, IKEA India said.
IKEA said it continues to develop its omnichannel presence with ecommerce, physical stores and additional services. After the Navi Mumbai store, two more city center IKEA Stores will open during 2021 to reach more people in Mumbai. IKEA is present online in Hyderabad and Pune with over 35 million online visitors so far and it has the ambition to reach 100 million Indian customers by 2022.
