IKEA has opened its first small-format store in a shopping mall in Rego Park.
The 115,000-square-foot space in Queens, New York City is part of the retailer’s plan to reach urban consumers. This store focuses on room sets, digital tools, and sustainable products that cater to individuals with small-space living needs.
According to IKEA’s website, customers will be able to purchase and take home portable home accessories like lamps, pillows and kitchen tools from this location.
Shoppers can also use self-pay and assisted-checkout options, and schedule appointments with IKEA planners if they wish to map out kitchens, living rooms, and bedrooms.
For larger orders, customers can opt for home delivery service for a flat fee of US$49.
Standard COVID-19 precautions have also been implemented at the store. Physical-distancing requirements and capacity limits, sanitization of surfaces and temperature checks will be carried out to ensure the health and safety of employees and customers.
