Here’s how to book a slot if you’re planning to visit IKEA

First, you must secure a shopping slot through IKEA’s official website. According to the Swedish furniture maker, this is to ensure the safety of customers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

You will also need to select how many of you will be going under your booking. You can only select up to three persons (including yourself) per booking.

Double check your booking details and confirm to proceed. You will be asked to encode your mobile number, where your one-time password (OTP) will be sent. You will also be asked to enter your full name and email address. Click Sign Up, then wait for both email and text confirmations. You will be issued a QR code that you need to present to enter the store on your confirmed scheduled date and time.

Consumers are also encouraged to observe its COVID-19 safety protocol when visiting the store, which includes:

  • Social distancing
  • Wearing of face masks in-store
  • Limiting the number of customers inside the store
  • Planning ahead and using contactless payment contact tracing application is also required upon entry, so make sure the app is installed on your phone before you visit the store.
