IKEA Opens Two ‘Pick-Up Points’ In Canada

IKEA-storeIKEA Canada will open its first two “Pick-Up-Points” in London, Ontario, and Quebec City in late 2015 as part of a global test pilot. With these new locations, consumers who have either shopped online or at a further IKEA store will be able to pick up products closer to where they live.

IKEA currently has 12 stores open across Canada, and is opening the Pick-Up-Points in markets where there are currently no locations.

Shoppers who visit the Pick-Up-Points will be able to purchase services to support their purchases, as well as browse the IKEA e-Commerce site by using a designated computer station. Approximately 99 products will be available for immediate takeaway.


“The ambition is to make IKEA more accessible to the many Canadians,” said Stefan Sjöstrand, President of IKEA Canada. “The Pick-Up-Points allow IKEA to expand quickly into markets that have been identified as having potential, resulting in consumers having easier access to our products.”

The new stores will average from 20,000 to 40,000 square feet, far smaller than the 323,000 square feet average among other IKEA Canada stores. IKEA will hire between 20 and 25 employees per location.
