Only a few days to go before IKEA officially welcomes the public to its largest branch in the world.
Its opening day is slated for Nov. 25, but the Swedish brand will only accept those who have booked their slots via its official website before their visit. In an interview with PhilSTAR L!fe, store manager Georg Platzer said that there are so many things to look forward to, including “instant gratification because most of the products we present will be available to take away the very same day.”
Wondering how you can make the most of your IKEA PH visit? Look no further as we’ve rounded up some areas you shouldn’t miss as well as some shopping tips that can make your first shopping experience in the flagship store one for the books.
Go to the third floor first, which contains its showroom. This is where you can get inspiration and somehow see how your items will look like in your living space. As per marketing manager Jasmin Cruz, “allow yourself to get lost and enjoy every home furnishing tip you would get along the way.”
When you reach the market hall on the second floor, keep an eye on the red markers—those are some must-haves at their lowest price. Such include chairs, shelves, and so much more.
Make sure to check out this one whole section called “Open The Wallet,” which is filled with a variety of products you might not want to pass up as they’re all priced under P100! Among the items in this portion are bags, kitchen items, and bathroom essentials.
Last but not the least, visit the Circular Hub, where you can score slightly damaged items at a discount. It’s perfect for those who want to get a bargain and live a sustainable life.
