IKEA opens Plan & Order Point in Stockport
IKEA has opened a new Plan & Order Point in Stockport for customers looking to plan new kitchens and bedrooms.
The smaller store format aims to offer home furnishing advice and expertise to help customers design their ideal space.
Spanning 71 square metres, the store is situated in the Merseyway Shopping Centre. Customers will find a selection of different kitchens to browse, as well as IKEA’s full range of kitchen fronts, worktops and a variety of appliances from its wider range. The space also showcases the retailer’s PAX wardrobe system, with doors, interior organisers, and knobs and handles.
Michael Parker, area manager of IKEA UK, said: “Our investment in the North West is part of our long-term plan to transform our retail business, continuing to make it easier for people to enjoy what IKEA offers using a variety of convenient ways. The North West is a key region for us, being home to over seven million people, and also being the place that IKEA first opened a UK store, 35 years ago in Warrington.”
Customers can book appointments free of charge with one of IKEA’s planning specialists or use in-store self-service tools to design their own solution.
Cllr Malcolm Allan, cabinet member for finance and resources at Stockport Council, said: “Whilst many high streets are in decline, businesses are seeing Stockport as a place that is growing and expanding, and a great place to be. That sort of recognition is something of an endorsement especially from an organisation of IKEA’s calibre and reputation.”
The opening follows the launch of a Plan & Order Point in Aintree, Liverpool in December. IKEA is also planning to open a third Plan & Order Point in the Preston area later this year.
