Does Ikea have brick & mortar stores in Argentina, or merely online ordering?
Ikea do not have any stores in ARGENTINA and are unlikely to open in the short term.
I hear they are looking very closely at Chile , which would seem to make sense for their business model.
You can find some IKEA products on https://homedecor.com.ar but they are much more expensive than what you are used to pay at a IKEA stores abroad. Like everything 'exotic' (as it 'from far away'), here it becomes a landmark of expensiveness and richness, whereas abroad it means 'cheap furnitures'. It couldn't get more ridiculous than this, could it?
Judging from the quality of the furniture displayed even in upscale barrios, I would think there should be a brisk business awaiting Ikea, should they move into Buenos Aires.
Not just antique furniture, but also that manufactured in Argentina as recently as 40-50 years ago was solid and built to last. Why the across the board switch to fiberboard and wood-grain plastic laminates?
Mr. Ikea just died and the NYT has a piece on him and his questionable political taste.
