The world’s largest Ikea store, Ikea Pasay City in Manila, is set to open its doors to the public this month after being delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Ikea Pasay City also marks the chain’s first location in the Philippines. The 67,760sqm store, scheduled to open on November 25, is located next to the Mall of Asia and spans five stories.
While two floors are dedicated to retail activities, the remaining floors are for stocks and e-commerce operations.
The new Ikea store will house more than 8,000 home furnishing and appliance products, together with a restaurant, where customers can find the brand’s famous Swedish meatballs. Ikea Philippines’ online store launched earlier this month for delivery orders after a soft launch in September.
The launch of Ikea Pasay City was announced in 2018 and due to open last year. However, the construction of the store was interrupted last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
