IKEA launches online service for Siberia and Russia’s Far East


IKEA launches online service: Swedish furniture and home furnishings behemoth IKEA today (February 2) began an online service for customers living in and around  major cities in both Siberia and Russia’s Far East. Its most easterly “bricks and mortar” retail outlet is currently in the West Siberian town of Novosibirsk, a 6-hour plane ride from Russia’s Far East coast. IKEA began rolling out its on-line operation in Omsk two years ago and now offers the service in more than 20 other cities. Vedomosti
