IKEA rolls out mobile collection points with Tesco
IKEA is rolling out over 70 additional mobile pick-up points in partnership with Tesco.
The new service will allow shoppers to collect their online IKEA orders from a designated area in the car park of participating Tesco stores. Overs over £100 will be free to collect while others will carry a charge of £5.
The move follows a pilot launch of the scheme last year and the trial of 12 mobile pick-up points in Blackburn, Burgess Hill, Cambridge, Dereham, Doncaster, Horwich, Liverpool, Stockport, Peterborough, Basildon, Aylesford and Crawley.
The 70 new pick-up points will be situated throughout various regions in England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland, with all set to be live by the autumn of 2024.
Jakob Bertilsson, country customer fulfilment manager at IKEA UK, said: “This national roll-out of mobile pick-up points is an exciting milestone in our partnership with Tesco, which will bring IKEA closer to people across all parts of the UK. As customer shopping behaviours change and evolve, we will continue to grow our service offer to make shopping with IKEA more convenient, accessible, and affordable than ever before.”
The expansion of IKEA’s mobile pick-up point network will strengthen its the range of Collect from Partner and store services. These also include 24 Shift self-serve collection lockers across the UK and 8,000 local DPD pick-up points, as well as IKEA’s home parcel and larger furniture home delivery and same day, free click and collect across all stores.
