IKEA Not Ruling Out Split & Rijeka Stores

CroatiaIKEA will open its doors to its first store in Croatia on Thursday in the capital Zagreb, but those in other parts of the country may not have to wait too long before a store opens up nearby with news of IKEA’s expansion plans for the region…

Speaking to Slovenia’s Finance, IKEA’s Regional PR Manager for Croatia, Romania, Serbia and Slovenia Igor Štefanac said that IKEA may open stores in both Split and Rijeka in the future.

“Long term it is possible to potentially see stores in Split and Rijeka in Croatia. Besides the planned store in the centre of Belgrade, one more in the Serbian capital, in Novi Sad, Niš and in central Serbia. With regards to the centre of Ljubljana, there is no new news about the finalization of the land purchase, ” said Štefanac, adding that IKEA planned to start building in Ljubljana next year on 84,000 square metres of land which the company planned to purchase off Triglav.

Štefanac rebutted claims that IKEA have given up on expanding in Croatia, saying that the search for land had already begun in those two cities. The Zagreb store has employed 349 people so far and opens at 10:00am on Thursday.
