New IKEA store in Drogheda will provide customers with free, one-to-one consultations with experienced IKEA kitchen and bedroom planners.
Furniture giant IKEA has opened a new Plan and Order Point at the Scotch Hall shopping centre in Drogheda, Co Louth.
The company has revealed that the new location is part of its national expansion with more Plan and Order Points to come in Ireland this year.
“We look forward to announcing more of these Points which will be located in retail parks and shopping centres over the next 12 months”
Plan and Order Points are smaller stores dedicated to kitchen and bedroom planning where customers can find home furnishing advice and expertise to help design their ideal space.
IKEA national expansion in Ireland
The initiative comes as part of the retailer’s ongoing transformation to make it easier as well as more accessible and sustainable to shop with IKEA.
Products can be ordered from across the full IKEA range for delivery direct to the customer’s home or a location of their choice.
Customers will be able to book an appointment to start their design with one of IKEA’s planning specialists or use the handy in-store self-service tools to design their own solution.
IKEA has previously opened two Plan & Order Points in Naas Co. Kildare and Stephen’s Green in Dublin’s City Centre over the last 12 months. To date, IKEA has helped over 3,500 customers with their kitchen, bedroom and living room designs.
A Cork Plan and Order Point is scheduled to open later in 2023 while a fourth store in Portlaoise is planned to open by the end of the year.
“These Plan and Order Points in Drogheda, Cork and Portlaoise will join the ones in Naas and St. Stephen’s Green Shopping,” said Martyn Allen, market manager, IKEA Ireland.
“We look forward to announcing more of these Points which will be located in retail parks and shopping centres over the next 12 months.”
