DIKEA UK has today announced plans to open a new Planning Studio in Bromley, South East London. The announcement follows the launch of IKEA’s first Planning Studio on Tottenham Court Road and forms part of the retailer’s ongoing city centre approach as it responds to the growth of city living and changes to the way people live and shop.
Scheduled to open in Spring 2019, the new Planning Studio will be located on the former Mothercare and Early Learning Centre site on Bromley High Street and will offer customers a personalised service dedicated to planning bedrooms and kitchens. At 900 sqm, it will provide customers with plenty of space to browse, plan and order their new bedroom or kitchen, alongside lots of inspiration for bedroom accessories, including chests of drawers, side tables and beds which customers will be able to purchase online.
“The opening of our new Planning Studio in Bromley will mark the next exciting step in our city centre approach as we bring IKEA to the heart of urban areas in London,” said Jane Bisset, IKEA London city centre market leader.
“Following the successful launch of our first Planning Studio on Tottenham Court Road, we are committed to giving customers the choices they need and understand the role we can play in helping people plan bigger projects in the home. We are looking forward to opening our doors to the people of Bromley and providing the expert advice you’d expect from IKEA, alongside a great service package and delivery offer.”
In addition to the Bromley and Tottenham Court Road Planning Studios, and existing full-sized London stores in Wembley, Tottenham, Croydon and Lakeside, IKEA is currently exploring other locations in London for similar outlets, alongside opportunities to test and trial different formats in the city centre. Customers can also shop the full IKEA product range online at their convenience at www.ikea.co.uk
IKEA will also be opening its leading sustainable store in Greenwich in early 2019, which will offer a variety of spaces and features to help Londoners live a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle.
More details on the new Bromley Planning Studio will be released in due course.
