Your favourite store from Sweden is about to get a whole lot better!

Ikea Australia Country manager, Jan Gardberg, spoke to Nine News about its incredible new plans.

“I’m imagining that we are going with smaller format stores, and we will put them where people already are shopping today,” he said.

In other words, there’s about to be a whole lot of new stores opening in shopping centres and popup Ikea stores.

According to Mr Gardberg, there is a major four-point plan to excite and delight shoppers and it’s starting with domestic production in Australia.

This means more jobs and more business for local companies.


“That will help us to lower the prices but still keep the quality,” he said.

So what else is in it for you? Solar panels! At cost price. Slashing your electrical bills. AMAZING.

“We want to be able to give energy solutions and affordable solutions to private people.”

Does this mean more meatballs and princess cakes in more stores? COUNT US IN!
