Ljubljana – The Swedish furniture group Ikea will be launching its online store for Slovenia on 25 February. If coronavirus restrictions will allow, its new brick-and-mortar store in Ljubljana will also open on the same day, the company said in a press release on Friday.
The online store will be accessible as of Tuesday at www.ikea.si, allowing buyers to browse, while purchases will be possible as of 25 February. A pick-up point will also open in Maribor on the same day.
Ikea said in the press release that its operations would be conducted in line with the company’s strict protective measures, as well as government orders and recommendations.
Measures will include obligatory masks, body temperature screening, frequent disinfection of premises and keeping of safe distance, the company said.
Ikea initially planned to open the new store at the end of 2020, but then postponed the opening due to the epidemic. The first Ikea store in Slovenia is 31,000 square metres big and will be selling some 9,500 items.
