Ikea's Bangkok store: Phuket will gain Asia's first Pickup and Order Point

Ikea to Open Asia's First Pickup and Order Point on Phuket Soon

Friday, November 6, 2015
PHUKET: Ikea is nearly hea. Phuket will gain a store selling the famously compact, stylish and reasonably priced range of furniture and other household goods with a grand opening on November 27.

It won't be a vast Bangkok-style store though but what Ikea calls a ''Pickup and order point,'' the first of its kind in Asia.

Those wishing to buy from Ikea will be able to scan online catalogues then place their orders, and pickup the goods from the Phuket store, which will be in the bypass road, close to the existing Premium Outlet facility.

A report that may already be out of date says Ikea has more than 370 stores in 47 countries: the Swedish brand is huge, among world's largest retailers, and it was just a matter of time before prosperous Phuket attracted a branch.

The urbanisation of Phuket will be complete when the largest Bangkok mall brands complete their projects over the next few years and give Phuket a shopping appeal to rival Thailand's capital.

China's all have a food section after checkout. Lots of great choices. Swedish meatballs were my favorite.

Probably an interim measure. A market test until Phuket grows a bit larger.
