Ikea to open Westfield order and collection point
The fourth of its kind in the UK and the first in London, the 900sq m unit has been designed to bring the Ikea home furnishing range and expertise closer to more customers. Acting primarily as a planning studio to plan "complex purchases" such as kitchens, wardrobes and sofas, the outlet will also feature the typical Ikea room sets and ideas.

Due to its size, it will not carry the full product range, but customers will be able to order from Ikea's online range for home delivery or collection. There will also be a small range of selected "market hall" items available for customers to take home on the day of their visit.

Said Ikea Westfield Stratford order and collection point manager Micro Righetto: "We are delighted to be bringing this unique version of IKEA to Westfield. Today, customers in the region shop with us online but they have to travel to other London stores to see the range or get advice from our co-workers. Located within 5 minutes of the train stations and close to major bus routes, IKEA Westfield Stratford City Order and Collection Point will be easy to access by public transport, something that we know is important to many customers who live in London.

"We have had a lot of positive feedback for bringing IKEA to the area and so we expect the first few weeks will be quite busy. We look forward to welcoming new and existing customers to the Order and Collection Point over the coming months."

Westfield UK & Europe chief marketing officer Myf Ryan said: "We are thrilled to celebrate the opening of IKEA's fourth Order & Collection point in the UK at Westfield Stratford City. With over 47 million visitors to the centre each year, we have no doubt that the accessibility of this new IKEA store will be a major draw for our customers. Westfield shoppers are increasingly looking for affordable, authentic and industry leading homes' selections and we are delighted that IKEA is joining our existing retailers in widening this offer."

Ikea is planning more order and collection points across the UK in the future.
