    How to shop in IKEA

    The IKEA Concept starts with the idea of providing a range of home furnishing products that are affordable to the many people, not just the few. But how do we keep prices low?

    First we do our part. We choose manufacturers who can deliver good quality at a low price, and we buy in bulk. Then we save on transport and storage by packing things flat.

    Next you do your part. By picking up the furniture, bringing it home and assembling it yourself. This is how together we save money.
