Claiming one of the most prominent spots on London’s most famous shopping street, the £378 million deal creates a new central London home for the Swedish furniture brand.

Despite the high street being hard hit during the pandemic and numerous stores closing or consolidating their store portfolios, IKEA is pushing forward with plans to expand its city stores.

Peter Jelkeby, retail manager at IKEA UK and Ireland, explains: ‘Even though online shopping continues to accelerate at a rapid pace, our physical stores, large and small, will always be an essential part of the IKEA experience – as places for inspiration and expertise, community and engagement.

‘Bringing IKEA to the heart of Oxford Street – one of the most innovative, dynamic and exciting retail destinations in the world – is a direct response to these societal shifts.’

IKEA’s parent company Ingka Investments has signed a conditional purchase agreement to buy the long leasehold on the building which includes the now vacant Topshop store. The deal will be completed in January 2022 but the IKEA store won’t be open until autumn 2023, so there’s a while to wait.
