If everything go as planned then very soon Navi Mumbai will house one of the biggest Swedish flat-pack furniture giant IKEA. The store is expected to come up along the Thane-Belapur road, spreading across 4 lakh sq ft.
IKEA offers bedroom sets and kitchenware, and a host of other products. According to the officials at IKEA, the new store will bring newer opportunities of employment with 500-700 full-time jobs.
IKEA is the first single brand retailer to launch in India after getting the foreign direct investment (FDI) approval.
