A roof-capping event was held last Friday (15 Feb) where guests were treated to a traditional Swedish ceremony to celebrate the finished construction. IKEA used this opportunity to thank key partners, suppliers, and VIPs for their involvement in bringing about the new branch. They also started the countdown to the store opening while unveiling features of the new outlet.
