IKEA to expand in Croatia

Swedish retail giants IKEA have confirmed that they are to expand in Croatia by opening on the Adriatic coast.

IKEA have confirmed that in 2017 they will be opening in the Dalmatian city of Split, although not a complete store. IKEA will initially open a 2500 m2 outlet which will be part showroom and part warehouse where customers are able to order, pay for and pick up goods on the same day.

“We are opening a delivery centre or ‘pick-up point’, a place where shoppers can order, pay for and pick up their goods. Just under half of the 2500 m2 space will be used a showroom for the products to inspire customers and visitors. We expect to open in the second half of 2017”, IKEA’s PR manager Igor Štefanac told daily Slobodna Dalmacija.

Although IKEA says that they are still looking for a suitable location, the report suggests that a site next to City Centre One in Split will be the location.
