IKEA To Start Building Croatia Store In April 2013

Speculation that Swedish furniture manufacturing giants IKEA will pull out of building a store in the Croatian capital Zagreb has been put to rest, after the company yesterday filed an application for a building permit to construct its first store in Croatia.

“Finally all the legal and administrative requirements for the start of construction has been settled after many years of intensive work. We expect that construction work will begin in March / April 2013. The opening of the first department store in Croatia is expected a year after the start of construction,” said IKEA.

IKEA will invest around 100 million euros in the Croatian venture, creating over 350 jobs.
