Going to IKEA elicits so many different emotions: excitement, intrigue and inspiration being the top three. A trip to IKEA often means a mission and an adventure, one that can result in you being a changed person in comparison to who you were when you first walked in.
Much to our excitement, there’s a brand new, innovative IKEA experience waiting for you at 360 MALL! With a clever pop-up format, IKEA’s Pop-Up release at 360 MALL arrives as a huge opportunity for all to access the store more easily! Described as “a new, temporary approach to bring IKEA closer to the people of Kuwait,” it’s the ideal way for anyone to experience IKEA in a unique and fun way until the 2nd of December.
Situated in 360 MALL’s Main Atrium on the ground floor, the Pop-Up presents an amazing range of surprises for customers to enjoy. From the great 2018 Catalogue and all of the iconic IKEA products, to an even newer and more exciting feature, the ability to, for the first time in Kuwait, order IKEA products online via the exclusive Pop-Up to be delivered to your home.
IKEA Kuwait’s Store Manager Mr. Ahmed Alhumaidi clued us in on the long-loved empire’s latest project. “We are really excited about offering our visitors the opportunity to buy the IKEA full range from our website at the IKEA Pop-Up; so the visitors can browse the website from the tablets we are providing in the Pop-Up. They can choose anything they wish from the IKEA website with the help of our coworkers. They can order and pay there and then. We will take care of delivering it to their homes at their convenience. This is a new and exclusive service only available at the IKEA Pop-Up in 360 MALL.”
What good news! Gone are the prehistoric days of having to search high and low in the self-service aisles only to find yourselves disappointed by not finding what you need. Now, you can reserve your merchandise online with the provided tablets at the Pop-Up store, thus making shopping to better your home even easier than it was before.
What’s even more exciting is the most revolutionary feature that IKEA has ever provided to the public. We’ve all played the game of trying to furnish a mental blank space with wish-listed IKEA furniture – but now, that dream is a virtual reality! With a 360 Degree store tour, IKEA will provide you the opportunity to furnish your own living room through a new virtual reality experience!
Using their fun and innovative VR experience will give you unlimited access to all IKEA products, and the “rooms” are customizable to your desired size and all you have to do is point and place your selected IKEA furniture. Are you happy with the result of your designed room? Save it or buy it in a click of a button. Who knew furnishing could be so fun?
Another great feature to look forward to at the IKEA Pop-Up is their FIKA: the literal Swedish word for “sitting and having a coffee.” We know you love your coffee, we do too, which is why IKEA’s organic coffee offering at their ambient FIKA corner will satisfy the perfect pre, mid, or post exploring pick-me-up that you need.
And lest we forget, the most exciting reason to visit the Pop-Up is that it includes an exclusive viewing of their gorgeous new 2018 catalogue products. Immerse yourself in the updated furnishings and finishing that contemporary Swedish home fashion can offer. From couches to wing chairs, throws, cushions, tables and more, in a wide range of eclectic colors and styles to suit anybody’s needs. More good news is that their most iconic products are always up for grabs at the Pop-Up, because we all know that while IKEA is constantly updating their inventory with hot new finds, sometimes a person just needs a classic KALLAX shelf unit to put their home together.
The IKEA Pop-Up at 360 MALL will be open until the 2nd of December for visitors to enjoy the IKEA concept and the new exclusive e-commerce service. Their timing is from Sunday-Thursday at 10 a.m.-10 p.m. and Friday-Saturday at 10 a.m.—11 p.m.
360 MALL is located in South Surra Al Zahraa Area, off Sixth Ring Road. Follow IKEA on Instagram @ikeakuwait for more information, and visit their website at www.IKEA.com.kw/IKEAPopUp for updates and facts.
