IKEA to open first store in Bahrain


August 18, 2014 | By RetailME Bureau

IKEA Saudi Arabia has announced plans to open a 323,000 sqft flagship store in the Bahraini capital Manama. With the land already purchased and the first initial design phase finalised and submitted, the store will be ready to open in Bahrain in the next three years.

Since its esta blishment in the region, IKEA has opened three stores in Saudi Arabia — in Jeddah, Riyadh and Dhahran — and is planning 10 more stores in the kingdom in coming years.

The Dhahran store in the Eastern Province, at such close proximity to Bahrain, will serve the Saudi market as well as the Bahraini market until the launch of the store in Manama.

Saud Ghassan Al Sulaiman, CEO of IKEA Saudi Arabia, says the new store is part of the company’s plan to expand its services in the region. “Our expansion into the Gulf is part of our vision, to serve customers throughout the region and follow the needs of the market, as well as provide our home furnishing competency, and while still serving the growing Saudi market, we are committed to expand our services into the Gulf by opening our first branch in Bahrain.”
