Drummondville, Sherbrooke and Trois-Rivières Collection Points makes shopping at IKEA easier and more affordable.
BURLINGTON, ON, July 4, 2018 /CNW/ - Shopping at IKEA just got more convenient today for customers in Quebec with the launch of three new Collection Point locations, in Drummondville, Sherbrooke and Trois-Rivières.
Customers can now shop online at www.IKEA.ca for IKEA home furnishings and have them delivered to the new Collection Points for only $49, 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 $49 and represents a savings over the home delivery fee of $120. Customers who wish to take advantage of home delivery can still do so, with the delivery fees remaining the same.
The Collection Point is not an IKEA store and is owned by third party service provider Dicom. IKEA product is not available for purchase at the Collection Point.
"We are focused on creating an easy and affordable shopping experience, no matter how or when our customers choose to interact with IKEA," said IKEA Canada President Marsha Smith. "The new Collection Points make bringing IKEA products home much more convenient to our customers in the Quebec market."
IKEA Canada is on a journey to become the leading multichannel home furnishings retailer, by delivering a seamless customer experience across all touchpoints, both physical and digital.
"In such a large country, it is important for IKEA to offer a variety of solutions to make shopping easier for Canadians," said Smith. "Launching these Collection Points is a natural next step that makes the brand even more accessible for local residents."
The retailer opened a new store in Halifax in fall 2017 and will welcome customers to its new store in Quebec City in late summer. IKEA Canada also operates six Pick-up and order point locations and now 17 Collection Points in Canada. IKEA also plans to open new distribution centres in Richmond, BC and Beauharnois, QC.
