IKEA fans, oil your gears—the Swedish retailer is officially holding their first-ever pop-up in the SM Mall of Asia Central Atrium!
IKEA Philippines announced the details of the pop-up on their official Facebook page on Thursday evening. Hello Philippines. For the first time ever, we're giving you a peek of what's in store for you at IKEA up-close and personal through our IKEA POP-UP! Get to know more about us at SM Mall of Asia Central Atrium from September 16-19. Watch out for updates for more dates and venues," the post read.
So there you have it: The pop-up will only run from September 16 to September 19, Sunday, so you'll have to head to SM MOA stat if you want in. (Of course, observe proper health protocols and only go if you absolutely need to!)
Take note, however, that the items at the pop-up will not yet be available to purchase. Yup, no shopping just yet—it'll be a viewing of the some of the merchandise you'll be able to buy once their store officially opens. Staff will be on standby for inquiries, so if you're doing some canvassing for an upcoming move or a home redecoration, this pop-up will be helpful!
The physical IKEA Philippines store has been in the works for a long time, which makes sense given that it's reportedly the largest IKEA store in the whole world. It'll span a whopping 65,000 square meters (which is equivalent to about 150 basketball courts), inclusive of their warehouse and call center facilities. The store, which will be located in the Mall of Asia Complex, is also set to host over 9,000 items! In any case, the extended wait for its grand opening will be totally worth it in the end.
You can expect both the online and physical stores to be in service by the fourth quarter of 2021, so make sure to keep your eyes peeled for announcements this coming October!
