IKEA On Track To Open First Croatian Store By Spring

Swedish furniture manufacturing giants IKEA are on target to open their first store in Croatia by Spring 2014. Despite temperatures edging into the 40’s, bulldozers continue to be hard at work in Rugavica, east of Zagreb, and everything is on track for the first IKEA mall to be complete by early next year. IKEA will invest around 100 million EUR in the Croatian venture, creating over 350 jobs in the process. There are also plans for IKEA malls to be built-in the Dalmatian city of Split and in Rijeka.
