(January 11, 2019 / JNS) The Swedish furniture and home accessories chain IKEA will open its fifth store in Israel later this year in Tel Aviv.
The store will have just 21,500 square feet of floor space. It will focus on kitchens, reported Globes on Thursday.
IKEA’s largest Israeli store, in Rishon Lezion, is 366,000 square feet and was opened in 2010, but not before the first one in the country opened in 2001 near Netanya.
The other megastores are in Kiryat Arba, opened in 2014, and Beersheva, opened in 2018.
IKEA is also planning to open a location that is a little more than 269,000 square feet in Eshtaol, near Bet Shemesh, in 2020.
The chain currently has more than 420 stores in 52 countries.
