Ikea to open second Mumbai store in R City Mall
Swedish furniture, homeware, and home textile business Ikea will open its second store in Mumbai in the city’s R City Mall in Ghatkopar. This will be Ikea’s first store located inside a mall in India.
The store is scheduled to open its doors to the public in the next few months, ET Bureau reported. Along with boosting Ikea’s brick-and-mortar presence in Mumbai, the store will also enable Ikea to increase its omni-channel capabilities in Maharashtra. When the new store opens, shoppers in the state will be able to order over 5,000 products online and browse over 2,000 products in-store.
“Mumbai is one of Ikea’s most important markets,” said Ikea India’s CEO and chief sustainability officer Susanne Pulverer, ET Online reported. “With Ikea R City, we will become more accessible to many more people in Mumbai with our well-designed, good quality, affordable, functional, and sustainable home furnishings range. With our second city store, we strengthen our omni-channel presence in Maharashtra.”
Earlier in June, Ikea announced a Rs 3,000 crore investment plan for the state of Karnataka over the coming few years. The business plans to focus on Bangalore, Hyderabad, Mumbai, and Delhi-NCR in the first phase of its store roll out in India. Ikea’s most recent store opening was in Bengaluru on June 22.
