IKEA Is FINALLY Bringing Online Shopping To More Australians
This can't come soon enough!
More Australians will soon be able to do all their IKEA shopping from the comfort of their homes.
IKEA has been working on bringing online shopping to Australia, with different formats of online ordering available in South Australia, Western Australia, Tasmania and even Wollongong.
The service is now being trialled in the Canberra area on November 30. IKEA intends to roll out the service nationally in the coming years.
"We've been shown a lot of love from the Canberrans, I think we've had 1.5 million visitors since we opened," IKEA spokesman Michael Donath told Fairfax.
"And I guess Canberra's a really good opportunity to test and try as well and learn from the market, understand how the customer experience should be where we have a store and online offering, and really see how we can support the customer best before we produce e-commerce for the rest of the country."
Delivery will start at $79 and is available in the ACT and Queanbeyan.
"In the new year we will look at other regional areas surrounding or a bit further from the ACT, so everywhere from Wagga Wagga through to places like Albury, Wodonga etc," said Mr Donath.
Shoppers will also be able to use IKEA’s click and collect service to order items online and pick them up at the store.
