As you already know, IKEA Philippines will be opening on November 25. Additionally, it will be the biggest branch yet in the world. To put things in perspective, "A typical IKEA store is around 35,000 square meters. The one we have designed will be around 65,000 square meters. That's equivalent to more than 150 basketball courts," says Christian Rojkjaer, Managing Director of IKEA Southeast Asia. Wow.
Now, if you're already curious as to what you'll see in this massive branch, check out this virtual tour, and get ready to book your slots to see them IRL.
IKEA is known for its showrooms, and those in Pasay take into account the Filipino lifestyle, including space, family set-ups, and even career and education choices. In case you didn't know, the brand has been interviewing and working with families for the past few years to make sure that what the offer is what the local market needs.
Huge homeware and furniture spaces
It's pretty much possible to find almost everything that you need here. From items for your home office to your newly upgraded kitchen, just about everything is available.
Probably one of the most interesting spaces within the store is their children's aection, with its toys (which are ensured to be safe--no choking hazards!), and its future-proof tables that can change in height as your kids get older.
Apart from these, there is also the Market Hall (self-service and super economical), and the Ciruclar Hub (where items with small defects are sold at lower prices)! Check out our coming articles for more info on these.
