In 2019 IKEA entered the Estonian market digitally with e-commerce and the opening of an IKEA Pick up and order point. With the opening of the IKEA Tallinn store, Estonia will become a full fledge market.
"We are delighted and excited. Miklatorg has a lot of experience in successfully operating retail businesses, and together we're determined to also make IKEA meaningful and beloved in the homes of our customers in Estonia," says Maria Johansson, Expansion Manager at Inter IKEA Systems B.V.
The IKEA Tallinn store, located 20 minutes from the capital city centre, by Kurna village, offers more than 9,000 home furnishing products and solutions for smarter and more sustainable living. It has been developed with the needs and dreams of local people in mind, e.g. the 53 rooms at the IKEA store showroom will show solutions adjusted to the living spaces and situations common in Estonia. The IKEA Tallinn store will have unique elements like a glass house dedicated to green plants, outdoor solutions and self-check-outs for an even better customer experience.
"At IKEA, we are driven by a passion for life at home. With the vision to create a better everyday life for the many people, we offer a wide range of home furnishing items, which are affordable for the many. Low price, every day, is our commitment to the many consumers in Estonia, along with the good design, functionality, sustainability and quality of our products," says Ian Strickland, Retail Manager for IKEA Baltics.
IKEA offers well-designed, functional and affordable, high-quality home furnishing, produced with care for people and the environment. There are several companies with different owners, operating under the IKEA trademark, all sharing the same vision: to create a better everyday life for the many people. The IKEA business was founded in Sweden in 1943.
