The much-awaited IKEA store in Pasay City is now open!
After a long wait, Swedish furniture maker’s biggest store yet officially opened its doors on Thursday, Nov. 25.
Present during the ceremonial ribbon-cutting were the Swedish Ambassador to the Philippines Annika Thunborg, IKEA Philippines store manager Georg Platzer, Pasay City Rep. Antonino Calixto, Pasay City Mayor Imelda Calixto-Rubiano and SM Supermalls President Steven Tan.
“Our journey started in 2016 by visiting Filipino homes to ask what life at home means for them, and what can be done better,” Platzer said. “We found people that shared the love for family and their home with us and it certainly inspired us a lot.
“After several years of preparation, we are finally ready now to live up to our vision of creating a better everyday life for the many people of the Philippines because we transferred our learnings into a beautiful store full of inspiring solutions,” he added.
To adhere to safety protocols amid the COVID-19 pandemic, IKEA Philippines will only be receiving a limited number of people per day via a slot booking system.
