Ikea has opened its first City Store in France. The 5 400 m² store is in the direct vicinity of Place de la Madeleine, where the French DIY market leader Leroy Merlin has also been operating an inner-city store for around a year. At Ikea La Madeleine, visitors can stroll around two floors in four areas with 29 examples of living spaces. The furnishings store shows Ikea products in a multi-channel environment in which the entire range is visible on site or with the help of digital tools. 1 500 products, accessories and smaller furniture items are available to be taken home directly.
