IKEA to open first store in Slovenia in 2020
Swedish furniture retailer IKEA will start building its first store in Slovenia in October, with construction expected to be completed in about 12 months, the company said on Tuesday, as reported by international news wire Reuters.
IKEA, one of the world’s largest furniture retailers, said it would invest EUR 90 million in the store in Sloveniaʼs capital Ljubljana, which is set to employ about 300 people.
Slovenia is something of a late start for IKEA; it already operates stores in neighboring Austria, Croatia, Hungary, and Italy.
