Any news on IKEA coming to Isaan?

Recommended Posts

I read a couple of years ago that IKEA was going to expand its present in Southeast Asia. Among the new stores were several more stores in Thailand within 2021 (Udon Thani, Chiang Mai, Pattaya, Bangkok, among other places were mentioned).

 

 

I've been looking quite frequently after any updates on this ever since but its been completely silence as far as I can see.

 

Have anyone read anything new on this or perhaps seen any activities anywhere?

They committed to open only one store a year in Thailand is what I read, so it may be a long wait, be nice to have one in the NE.

 Oh that was last year. I guess they want to make those big ones before placing out pickup stores around the country. Makes sense, though another big one in Udon/Khonkaen region would've been nice as it would cover a fairly populous region more effectively and conveniently.

 

Korat 2.6 million

Khonkaen 1.8 million

Buriram 1.6 million

Udon Thani 1.5 million

Roi-Et 1.3 million

Chaiyaphum 1.1 million

Sakon Nakhon 1.1 million

Maha Sarakham 1 million

Kalasin 1 million

Phetchabun 1 million

 

Loei, Nong Bua Lamphu, Nong Khai and Bueng Kan is another 2.2 million people.

 

If you add the rest of east Isaan then its another 7 million.

 

Thats over 23 million people within 3.5 hours driving range
