ABSTRACT
The article reports that furniture giant Ikea AB has ambitions to open a further five stores in the London area, with three sites already identified in the west, south west and south east of the capital. According to chairman Scott Cordey this would give it nine London, England stores of the three, one has already received planning permission while the remaining two are still in the process of getting the go ahead. These stores are expected to follow the smaller store format announced last month, which it hopes will circumvent the strict planning rules.
