Swedish furniture retailer IKEA has officially opened its delivery center in RIjeka, located at Marvinci Street no.16, Croatia.
At the delivery center, shoppers will be able to pick up items ordered online or purchased at the IKEA department store in Zagreb. As a result, delivery times and costs will be greatly reduced.
“By opening the new IKEA delivery center in Rijeka, we are making our products more accessible to our customers. As previously announced, we are currently focused on the Croatian coastline and by the end of August we will open a new delivery center in Split. We aim to continually look for new ways of making our offer more accessible and are looking into opening IKEA delivery centers in other locations,” said Suzana Rumbak Baretić, Logistics Manager at the IKEA department store in Zagreb.
At present, IKEA operates one store in Croatia, situated at Alfreda Nobela no.2 Street in Zagreb. Within the South East Europe (SEE) region, the Swedish powerhouse is also present in Romania and Bulgaria, and is scheduled to open its first department store in Serbia on the 10th of August.
In the coming period, the furniture giant aims to open several new delivery centers, as well as to continue its expansion in the SEE region, opening three new IKEA department stores in the next three years.
