Collection Point will make shopping at IKEA more accessible, convenient and affordable for Saskatchewan residents
BURLINGTON, ON, June 22, 2017 /CNW/ - Shopping at IKEA just got more convenient for customers in Saskatchewan, with the launch of a Collection Point in Regina.
Customers can now shop online for IKEA home furnishings and have them delivered to the 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. This represents significant savings over the average home delivery fee of $160. Customers who wish to take advantage of home delivery can still do so, with the delivery fees remaining the same.
"Our ambition is to become more accessible to as many Canadians as possible," said IKEA Canada President Marsha Smith. "The launch of the Regina Collection Point is a great way to provide our customers with a more convenient shopping experience."
Located at 525 12th Avenue East, the Collection Point is not an IKEA store and is owned by third party service provider Dynamex. While it does 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," said Smith. "With a Collection Point already established in Saskatoon, it was a natural next step to launch in Regina, to make shopping online at www.IKEA.ca affordable for many more Saskatchewan 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, improvements in eCommerce and customer-focused distribution. IKEA hopes to provide its customers with a positive IKEA experience in every touchpoint.
In 2015, IKEA Canada announced an ambitious plan to double in size by 2025. To achieve this goal, the retailer will open new stores in new locations and also introduce some new formats over the next 10 years. The first new store on this expansion journey will be IKEA Halifax, set to open in Fall 2017.
