It’s IKEA, but not as you know it.

Home furnishing company IKEA today revealed plans to open its first Order and Collection Point in Ireland as part of its expansion programme in the Irish market.

The new Order and Collection Point is part of the company’s plans to test and explore new sales channels that make IKEA more accessible to customers.

IKEA Dublin Carrickmines Order and Collection Point will be located in The Park, Carrickmines and is expected to open in summer 2016. This is a new format for IKEA and it has been designed to bring the IKEA home furnishing range and expertise closer to more customers.

Acting primarily as a planning studio to plan and order more complex purchases such as kitchens, wardrobes and sofas, the new Order and Collection Point will also feature the much-loved IKEA room sets providing inspiration and ideas for the home and expert co-workers, offering home furnishing knowledge and advice.

IKEA Order and Collection Development Manager, Jack Jackson said: “We want to make our products and services available to more people and we are really excited to be bringing this unique new format to the south side of Dublin. Located just off Junction 15 of the M50, IKEA Dublin Carrickmines Order and Collection Point will be highly accessible via the Luas Green Line, through public bus service and by vehicle with ample car parking facilities available.”

The new Order and Collection Point will not carry the full product range to take home, but customers will be able to order from the full range available at the IKEA Dublin Store for home delivery or for collection at the collection point. In addition, a small range of products will be available for customers to take home on the day of their visit.

IKEA Dublin Carrickmines Order and Collection Point will offer free Wi-Fi and it will also have a small selection of take-home Swedish Food Market products, including IKEA’s famous meatballs.

Recruitment for a team of 30 multi-skilled co-workers has now begun. Mr Jackson adds: “As a values-based company, it’s not necessarily about the qualifications you bring but rather that you have the right attitude and share our passion for home furnishing and customer service.” 

IKEA offers co-workers an attractive remuneration package incorporating the Living Wage which was introduced on 1st April this year as well as, family friendly policies and a competitive reward package.
