IKEA open second store in Croatia

Written by  Nov 06, 2016

IKEA is set to open its second store in Croatia. The Swedish retail chain opened their first store in Croatia near Zagreb in 2014 and now they have confirmed that the second store will be opened in Split.

According to a statement from the company the store in Split should be opened in 2017, however this will not be a classic IKEA store but more of a showroom where customers will be able to order and pick up goods. It is suggested in the press that IKEA will open this showroom in the City Centre One shopping centre in Split.

Whilst shoppers in southern Croatia will be disappointed that they won’t have a classic IKEA store at least they won’t have to drive to the Croatian capital to shop.

Speaking to the Croatian newspaper Slobodna Dalmacija the PR manager of IKEA, Igor Stefanac, commented that “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 2,500 m2 space will be used a showroom for the products to inspire customers and visitors.”
