IKEA plans 1st Bengaluru store in Whitefield

IKEA has rented 1,00,000 square feet to set up its first store in Bengaluru. The store, coming up in VR Mall in Whitefield, is expected to be operational by 2022.

IKEA will occupy the entire ground floor of VR Mall. The store is currently in the fit-out stage. The deal has a lock-in period of 15-20 years. Work on IKEA’s own store in Bengaluru is under construction at Nagasandra.

The company plans to open two more city centre IKEA Stores in 2021 to reach more people in Mumbai. It is set to enter top Indian cities with its multi-channel presence with e-commerce and physical stores.
