The IKEA journey in Malaysia started in 1996 with an 8,000 sq m store at 1Utama Shopping Mall. Seven years later, IKEA moved to Mutiara Damansara to open its very first big blue store that many know today as IKEA Damansara. On 14 August, it will be 20 years since the iconic store opened its doors to the public – and IKEA Malaysia is inviting Malaysians to join in on the celebration!
To commemorate 20 years of IKEA Damansara, a jam-packed roster of activities and offers await customers, starting 14 July leading up to its grand finale on 20 August.
“IKEA Damansara has come a long way, thanks to the love and support that we’ve received over the years. 20 Years of Damansara Lah! is about celebrating this amazing journey we’ve shared with our customers, and the many moments we were able to spread joy and make them say wow or cantiknya! Our customers continue to inspire us, and we hope to grow further and offer solutions – home furnishing and beyond – that remain relevant to their ever-evolving needs,” Malcolm Pruys, Country Retail Director for IKEA Malaysia shares.
Fun activities in-store, inspired by the MAMMUT chair and its timeless appeal
Kicking off the celebration is the unveiling of a colossal replica of the MAMMUT children’s chair.
Since its introduction in 1993, the comic strip-inspired chair which is part of the IKEA MAMMUT range for children, has brought joy to many families over the years. In that spirit, IKEA Damansara will host a variety of activities in-store for your children to enjoy!
Each day will feature different arts and crafts that your little one can look forward to. The activities will be held at IKEA Småland every weekend until 20 August, for free!
Nothing says celebration like discounts and offers!
Also part of the 20th anniversary celebrations is a weekly series of irresistible product offers exclusively for IKEA Family Members. The offers will be rolled out in phases on selected items only at IKEA Damansara and Cheras starting 14 July to 20 August. These feature popular IKEA products including GRÅSALA Table, MATCHSPEL Gaming Chair, NISSAFORS Trolley, and more. The first phase of the sale has started and will be ongoing until 20 July.
In the weeks leading up to 20 August, IKEA Damansara will highlight several IKEA products that were available in 2003 when the store first opened and are still in stores today. Take a trip down memory lane when you shop at IKEA Damansara, see how your favourite IKEA items have changed over the years. Hint: Do not miss out on special offers on some of these items!
