IKEA Announces 3 New "Collection Points" for BC Residents

IKEA Announces 3 New

BC - Shopping at IKEA just got more convenient for customers in Victoria, Kelowna, and Nanaimo, British Columbia with the launch of three Collection Points.

Customers can now shop online for IKEA home furnishings and have them delivered to their selected Collection Point for only $79, regardless of the size and value of their purchase.

This means they will be able to ship as little as a single sofa or as much as an entire kitchen for a flat rate and represents significant savings over the average home delivery fee of $170. Customers who wish to take advantage of home delivery can still do so, with the delivery fees remaining the same.

The Collection Points are not IKEA stores and are owned by third party service provider XPO. While they do not have any products available for purchase, Collection Points allow IKEA to make shopping easier in markets that have been identified as having potential.

"In such a large country, it is important to offer a variety of solutions we can use to make shopping easier for Canadians," says IKEA Canada President Marsha Smith. "Launching these locations was a natural next step to make shopping online affordable for many more British Columbia residents."

It is IKEA's aim to make the brand more accessible and convenient for the many Canadians, through increased service offerings like Collection Points, Pick-up and order points, Click & Collect, improvements in eCommerce and customer-focused distribution. IKEA hopes to provide its customers with a positive IKEA experience in every touchpoint.
