It’s Christmas Time in IKEA!

Last week, we visited the IKEA store in Yas Island, Abu Dhabi for our monthly Sales Matrix Meeting. The meeting was scheduled for 2 days so we stayed overnight in Park Inn hotel.

On our second day, we did a store walk with the Sales Managers and it was nice to see how much they have achieved in terms of display techniques and commerciality. Really well done! 🙂

Let me proudly show you some pictures I took during our visit…

On our floor walks, we always start from the main entrance as we want to perceive and experience ‘shopping’ in the store exactly as how the customers do.

Lovin’ this outdoor set displayed in the parking area. 🙂

By the way, we have already launched our Christmas range so the store is now full of Christmas ideas and displays which are no doubt soooo lovely and inspiring! 🙂

Walk with me (virtually) and enjoy the following photos!

Before I forget…

We also launched a new department called Papershop. In this area, you will find stationeries, gift wrappers, washi tapes, paper bags, lanterns, etc. The designs are so unique and beautiful. So if you are planning to visit, bring a lot of self-control with you! haha

  1. Can I simply juѕt say what a relief tо uncover ѕomeone that actually
    understands whɑt theʏ’гe discussing oνer the internet.

    You definitelу knoѡ how to bring a problem to light and mɑke it imрortant.

    A lot more people neеd tο check this out and understand tɦіѕ
    side օf thе story. ӏ can’t belіeve you
    aren’t more popular since you surely possess tҺe gift.

  2. I find it really hard to decide what to give as a gift. I wanted it to be special and of course usable at the same time. It was my bestfriend’s birthday and I bought her a bracelet in myvista.ae. It was not that expensive yet she love it. Thoughts really matter.
