Andrew alerted me today to some incredibly important information.
IKEA will be opening a concept store in Norwich, at the Sweet Briar Industrial estate, in the coming year. You have no idea how excited I am!
An IKEA spokesperson apparently confirmed the news to ‘Furniture News Online’, although no jobs have been advertised. It’s suggested it will be more of a market hall-style store, with their smaller items, although rumours of a click-and-collect or order point service are flying. Personally, I’m excited for a market hall because a lot of their best products are the cheap, small ones; their fabric is great value and their kitchen utensils are fab, not to mention the 1 quid flip-top jars!
I’ll be certain to make a shopping list for IKEA soon enough, let me know what recommendations you have!
