IKEA is famed for its ready-to-assemble furniture and home accessories. The Swedish-based corporation has expanded to many countries around the globe since its founding in 1943. It features more than 460 stores in total. Although the stores are typically designed using a similar layout, certain locations are bigger and more impressive than others. If you’re curious about the largest IKEA stores in the world, check out the following list.
1. Pasay, Manila, Philippines
Recently opened in 2021, the only IKEA store in the Philippines now takes the crown as the biggest one in the world. It’s located in the country’s capital city and covers more than 700,000 square feet with all of its grand facilities. The Swedish furniture manufacturer has big expansion plans in Asia and the Manila store represents a prime example of that.
The store’s opening has been delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic that caused logistics issues. IKEA found the right timing to arrive in the Philippines considering the booming middle class in the country desiring to equip their newly bought homes with stylish furniture. Despite some recent economic contractions in the overall Southeast Asia region, IKEA plans to create more store locations to further cement its powerful brand.
