IKEA downsizing and smaller stores are set to hit high streets across UK
That’s good news for shoppers in our area who currently have to travel to Milton Keynes for their nearest IKEA store.
The Swedish furniture giant is said to be heading to the high streets after frustrated customers said they want to travel fewer miles to get to the nearest store.
Gillian Drakeford, IKEA’s UK country manager, said: “We know that consumers in the UK like to shop across many channels and are using multiple devices.
“Our customers are also telling us that with 18 stores in the UK, we are often too far away.
“Order and Collection Points give us the opportunity to trial new ways of being more accessible.”
