The world’s largest furniture retailer, which opened its first store in Hyderabad last week, has already slashed prices on a slew of products to appeal to a wider Indian audience. It is also offering about 1,000 of its products at Rs 200 or less to overcome the intense competition in the local market.
And the result is not surprising.
Thousands of enthusiastic customers are making a beeline for its products at the newly opened Hyderabad store. The Swedish home furnishings giant reportedly clocked about Rs 6 crore in sales on the opening day, with nearly 10,000 shoppers visiting the store by 5 pm.
"Hej Hyderabad, our excitement has overwhelmed us (literally). Our store and parking are full . But there's nothing to lose as we are open 365 days and our low prices are valid every day. So take all the time you need," IKEA said in a statement on its website.
