IKEA to open its first store in Bahrain
Ghassan Ahmed Al Sulaiman Furniture Trading Co. Ltd., IKEA Saudi Arabia, the leading home furnishings company in the region, will soon cross the sea into Bahrain and open its 30,000 square meter flagship store in a premium destination mall in Manama.
With the land already purchased and the first initial design phase finalized and submitted, Bahraini residents will be able to take advantage of IKEA’s wide range of services within the next three years. Just like the rest of its stores in the region, IKEA Bahrain will provide customers with a full range of products and inspiration on how to tastefully design and style their living space.
Saud Ghassan Al Sulaiman, CEO of IKEA Saudi Arabia, said, “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.”
Al Sulaiman added, “We would like to express our appreciation to our loyal and supportive customers because without them, such expansion would not be possible.”
Since its establishment, IKEA has expanded throughout the Kingdom, with a total of three stores, in each Jeddah, Riyadh and Dhahran. IKEA’s plans are not solely limited to Gulf expansion, but will also be closer to home as well, with 10 more stores planned in the coming years in KSA. 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.
To thank their customers and express their gratitude, IKEA Saudi Arabia has launched an exclusive offer in the month of August of 15% off purchases of SR 1,000 or more, which can be redeemed from September until December 2014. Both Saudi and Bahraini residents can enjoy this offer at all IKEA Saudi Arabia stores.
IKEA will continue to serve as a source of inspiration to families across the region by providing them with a vast range of home furnishing products, suited to a variety of tastes, at affordable prices. IKEA, unlike any other furniture store, offers customers a full-day shopping experience that brings the whole family together, living up to its promise of providing a better everyday life.
