IKEA customers in Ireland will now be able to buy their popular flat pack products online.

The Swedish furniture giant announced that its shop online service is now live, the latest development in the company's plan to extend its reach countrywide.

The layout of IKEA Ireland's current website will remain the same easy-to-use (and browse) interface. However, now each product will give the consumer an option to purchase and deliver.

IKEA said that it recognises that customers’ needs are changing, and that customers want more choice in how they shop.

"We know accessibility, convenience and value for time are critical factors in meeting our customers’ needs," Claudia Marshall, IKEA Ireland Market Manager, said.

"Shop online gives customers across Ireland another way to shop with IKEA and allows them to choose how and when they want to shop with us. This launch will help create a seamless shopping experience from the digital right through to the physical meeting with our customers".
