IKEA plans to open its first shopping center in India after the furniture giant’s shopping centres business – one of the world’s largest – said it had bought a 48,000-square-meter plot in the city of Noida on the outskirts of Delhi, Reuters reports

IKEA, which opened its first store in India in 2018 in Hyderabad followed by one in Mumbai in 2020, said it would develop the new site into a mall anchored by an IKEA store.

Ingka Centres, which has 45 IKEA store-anchored malls across Europe, Russia and China and plans to enter the United States in 2021, said it planned to invest nearly 55 billion rupees (US$759 million) in the Noida project.

It will announce more detailed plans for the project in the near future, it said in an emailed statement.

Ingka Centres plans to enter around 45 large cities across its existing markets and the United States in coming years.

Ingka Centres is owned by Ingka Group which also owns most IKEA stores worldwide.
