Ikea will open its first store in Mexico in the autumn of 2020
This first headquarters will be located in Oceania, in Mexico City and will also have a restaurant with a capacity to accommodate 665 people.
"We do not come to Mexico to create jobs, we come to create careers with fantastic benefits," said Malcolm Pruys, country retail manager for Mexico, during the presentation of the Swedish brand in the country.
Ikea's offer in the country will have some Mexican suppliers that comply with its sustainability conditions. Along with the physical store, Ikea will open its e-commerce service with more than 7,500 articles.
"We know that Mexico City is a big challenge, with a lot of people, but above all with a lot of interest in our products and in the solutions we offer," said Annie Chandler, store manager.
