IKEA coming to Split and Rijeka

Swedish retail giants IKEA are to expand in Croatia by opening on the Adriatic coast in Split and Rijeka this summer.

In July IKEA will open its first delivery centre, or ‘pick-up point’, in the city of Rijeka on the northern Adriatic coast (Mavrinci 16b, Čavle), whilst in August it will open the same in Split (CITY CENTER ONE, Vukovarska 207).

Both delivery centres, which will be up to 1000 m2 in space and employ around five IKEA staff members, will enable customers to pick up goods which are ordered via IKEA’s websjop as well as checking out showcased products.

“Our goal is to make IKEA available and accessible to most customers in Croatia. By opening two delivery centers in Split and Rijeka, we are closer to this goal. But we will not stop there. We are currently considering other locations in Croatia where we could open delivery centers. We hope our customers will also recognize the efforts we are doing to help them further make purchases and save them,” said Suzana Rumbak Baretić, logistics manager for IKEA Croatia, writes Poslovni.hr.

IKEA plans to open more delivery centres in the region in the near future, including two more in Croatia, as well as three more IKEA stores in the region in the next three years.
