IKEA and Tesco Ireland are collaborating to roll out six new mobile pick-up points across the country, according to local media reports.
The new pick-up points will allow customers to pick up their IKEA orders from their local Tesco store carpark for free if the order is over €200, and at a cost of €15 for orders under €200.
The service, which has already been piloted in three locations, operates in the form of vehicles which are parked in signposted areas in the Tesco car park with operatives to hand the orders out. On arrival, the customer shows their confirmation order to receive the delivery.
It is being launched on Friday in three locations; Limerick, Galway and Cork with plans to expand to Waterford, Tipperary and Wexford in the coming weeks.
In addition, IKEA also recently opened its latest plan and order point, marking the fourth plan and order point to open in the country in the last 12 months. It also currently has several mobile pick-up points across the UK.
Martyn Allan, IKEA Market Manager, Ireland, said: “This partnership acknowledges the dynamic nature of the retail industry and provides an opportunity to bring IKEA closer to more people.”
Arlene Maguire, Head of Property Acquisitions and Asset Management at Tesco Ireland, added: “Some months into this partnership, we are seeing just how convenient this offering is for customers, who are pairing picking up their IKEA order with doing their weekly shop or picking up their Click + Collect order.”
