IKEA Ireland to extend mobile collection points

Swedish furniture retailer IKEA has revealed plans to launch a number of mobile pick-up points across Ireland.

In partnership with Tesco Ireland, the move expands the service from its three pilot locations in Mitchelstown in Cork, Drogheda in Louth and Naas in Kildare, which opened in May, to six new sites.

These include locations in Galway, Limerick, Waterford, Tipperary, Wexford and Cork, with the latter to open soon at Tesco Youghal.

The collection point gives shoppers the option of collecting an IKEA order from a designated area within the Tesco store’s car park – with orders over €200 free to collect and €15 for all other orders.

IKEA says the mobile pick-up points give customers a “more convenient, accessible, and affordable way to shop for IKEA’s products”.

The move extends the service from its UK rollout, where IKEA recently opened a mobile collection point in the Tesco Werrington Superstore on Staniland Way, Peterborough, adding to its other locations in Blackburn, Burgess Hill, Cambridge, Dereham, Doncaster, Horwich, Liverpool and Stockport.

Back in Ireland, IKEA has partnered with logistics business Wincanton to manage its first Customer Distribution Centre (CDC) in the country.

Located in Greenogue Logistics Park in south-west Dublin, the 280,000sqft warehouse will enable quicker customer fulfilment and better availability of IKEA products in the country, with delivery lead times reduced by more than half.

The first deliveries are expected to leave the warehouse in early 2024. When fully up and running, the CDC will create 120 jobs across warehousing, logistics, and administration.
