The customers who shop online will have the chance to decide whether they want goods delivered to their homes or whether they will pick them up from the shop. In both cases it is possible to choose the date.

“While shopping online it’s possible to choose from a whole assortment of several thousands of products, excepting specific items such as plants, piece goods or foods,” said the manager of eCommerce Nina Maláková, as quoted by the SME daily.

The prices of transport and pick-up should also be the same for customers who order the service in shop, regardless of the amount or weight of the goods, stated Ikea.
