IKEA to open its second store and café in Abu Dhabi
IKEA has announced that its second store in Abu Dhabi and fifth in the UAE will open in Al Wahda Mall on November 10.
Spread across over 2,100 square metres on the first floor of the Al Wahda Mall, the store will offer its range of products, but in a more convenient location for those living downtown.
The store will be home to approximately 2,000 low and medium-sized ready-to-assemble furniture and home essentials with quick access for customers who require their essentials on the go.
In addition, a Swedish café will be available for dine-in and takeaway including favourites such as the shawarma, hot dogs and Swedish pastries.
Commenting on the announcement, Vinod Jayan, Managing Director – IKEA UAE, Egypt and Oman says, “One of our key strategic objectives at IKEA is to reach and engage with many more of the many people, and with the opening of our second store in Abu Dhabi we edge closer to achieving our goal. We know that time is of the essence for the many people therefore with the mall’s strategic and central location, we will be bringing the IKEA experience closer to people’s homes, in a more convenient and compact IKEA store.”
The store comes in line with the brand’s growth strategy across the region and commitment to bricks-and-mortar stores across its operating markets. Further stores are set to open in UAE, Cairo and Muscat in the coming years.
