IKEA opens second-hand store

IKEA takes a step forward in its journey to become a circular business by 2030, with the opening of its first world’s first second-hand store in Eskilstuna, Sweden. The store is located in the ReTuna Shopping Centre, where all products sold are reused or recycled.

The new store that will be open initially for 6 months is run by the existing IKEA Västerås store that will provide furniture and home-furnishing accessories that for different reasons have been damaged. At ReTuna they will be repaired and given a second chance in a new home.

The store is part of IKEA’s aim to develop a circular and profitable business model for the future. The second-hand store helps IKEA test this approach and inspire more people to live a more sustainable life within the boundaries of the planet, paving the way to transition from a linear to a circular business model.

Transforming into a circular business impacts every aspect of the IKEA business and will enable the prolongation of product and material life, by enabling the four circular loops of reuse, refurbishment, remanufacturing, and recycling.
