IKEA store in Hyd to open next month

Read Time: 1 minutes

The India store, set to open next month in Hyderabad, will feature IKEA’s first in-house furniture-assembly team, with 150 full-time employees. IKEA created the optional service after research indicated many Indians would be unlikely to buy bookshelves and tables they had to screw together.

The store also will have items tailored for Indian preferences, such as lunchbox sets to carry multiple-course meals, pans to cook Indian flatbread, and mattresses containing coconut fibers, which many Indians find cooling. The outlet’s 1,000-seat restaurant will be IKEA’s biggest to date, serving samosas and biryani as well as Swedish meatballs made with chicken or vegetables because most Indians don’t eat beef or pork.
