IKEA are considering opening another Dublin store
For IKEA lovers, this will be music to your ears...
Swedish furniture retailers IKEA are exploring the idea of opening a new south Dublin store, but haven't committed to building the new store just yet.
A meeting was held between IKEA Ireland and officials of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council last year, discussing the trading situation in Ireland and the nature of their order and collect outlet in Carrickmines, South Dublin.
According to FORA, IKEA were also exploring the option of a site in South Dublin. But a spokesperson for IKEA said that no decision had been made on a location and they are exploring many areas of Ireland, in particular Cork.
The company had €150m in sales in Ireland in 2016, with a range of 10,000 products and has a worldwide turnover of €35bn.
In November last year, the Irish Examiner reported that IKEA had picked a location in Cork as the site for their next Irish store.
They claimed that sources confirmed that IKEA had opted for a large site in Cork’s Carrigtwohill, close to the rail line.
