This initiative helps our customers to access IKEA’s wide range of home furnishing products at an affordable cost,” said Caroline Aude Laurence Baillier, services experience leader of Ikea India.
“We are focused on our omnichannel expansion and currently, we are exploring several locations to expand click-and-collect services in the city,” added Baillier.
Using Click & Collect, consumers can order products online and collect them from the click and collect area closer to them. A nominal shipping fee of Rs. 200 will be charged, regardless of the size or weight of the products ordered.
