ATHENS – ΙΚΕA, a company of the FOURLIS Group, announced on Monday that it will open its first small shop, based on a new urban store concept, in the centre of Piraeus.
According to the company, this investment comes two years after the extremely successful operation of the IKEA Pop-up Store in the area, which received a warm response from the city of Piraeus. It is a strategic decision based on the broader growth framework of the group, with the operation of new concept stores that aim to bring IKEA even closer to the consumer.
The new store, on Gounari Street, is expected to open its doors in October 2020 to welcome its customers in an area of 2,000 sq.m. spread over three floors. Visitors will have the opportunity to discover more than 1,000 unique codes, draw inspiration from the special exhibition space and acquire the most beautiful and functional products that will accompany their daily life from the department of home equipment. At the same time, specialised IKEA employees will be at the design centre daily to help customers design the wardrobe or kitchen they desire.
In addition, the store will have a restaurant that will offer daily selected dishes, as well as some choices of salads, desserts and products from the IKEA Swedish food store. On the ground floor there will also be a take-away café.
