IKEA was earlier supposed to open the store in July, but it got postponed because the company needed more time to fulfill quality commitments. According to a previous statement, IKEA Retail India CEO Peter Betzel said, "IKEA Retail India decided to move the date as it needs some more time to live up to its expected quality commitments towards customers and co-workers." IKEA has plans to make it big in the digital space by competing with the other players like Pepper Fry and Urban Ladder.
