Ikea will reopen 19 stores across England from December 2. This includes Tottenham Court Road’s Planning Studio which will re-open for appointments and walk-ins.
In line with local Government guidelines, stores in Scotland and Wales as well as Click & Collect facilities will remain open.
The stores will open with various measures in place.
This includes a staggered entry system and limited numbers of customers granted entry in store at any one time.
Customers are urged to come prepared with ready-made lists and their own bags, and those wishing purely to return items, are encouraged to do so at a later date. IKEA has a 365 day returns policy.
All play areas will remain closed, however.
In line with stores reopening, customers will now be able to pick up Christmas trees outside of participating stores in the UK.
Restaurants will remain closed for stores in Tier 3, however, the Bistro, which operates a contact-free takeaway service, will re-open.
For stores in Tier 2 locations, the restaurant and Bistro will re-open with extensive safety measures in place including two-metre distancing, screens and deeper and more frequent cleaning routines.
