Swedish furniture and home furnishings retailer IKEA on October 11 celebrated the groundbreaking ceremony of its third India store in Bengaluru. The 500,000 sq. ft. store, scheduled to open in mid 2020 is connected to the Nagasandra metro station and will have parking space for 2,000 and a 1000-seater restaurant serving Swedish and Indian delicacies.

It will also house a supervised children’s play area called ‘Småland’, according to Indian media reports.

The store will employ 800-1,000 directly and 1,500 indirectly. It will have solar panels, LED lights, rainwater harvesting, water treatment plants and modern waste management systems. IKEA plans to use electric vehicles for deliveries and even co-worker transportation in future. (DS)
