If you’ve been using this extra time at home to do a little DIY and decorating, there’s good news ahead! Almost all IKEA Canada stores are reopening for curbside pickup as of Thursday, May 7. For a flat rate of $5, you can order as much as you like online, and pick it all up in a “safe, contactless way.”

After several weeks of being closed to the public, IKEA Canada has confirmed that stores will be reopening for curbside pickup as of Thursday, May 7.

In a statement on the same day, the Swedish company explained, “As of today, we are happy to offer our customers a new Curbside Click & Collect service at IKEA Canada stores.”

This new service will be available across Canada, except in one province. In Quebec, shoppers will have to wait until May 11 to access the new program.

According to the IKEA website, the Curbside Click and Collect service will have different operating hours, depending on the specific store.

Fortunately, pick up times will be available for you to select at checkout. This means you’ll be able to find a time that works for you.

The company will also offer assistance with loading vehicles, upon customer request. However, it is noted that physical distancing must be maintained at all times.

To ensure staff and customers are adequately protected, IKEA has implemented “enhanced health and safety measures for Curbside Click & Collect.”

This will include a completely contactless exchange between customers and staff, enhanced physical distancing protocol, personal protective equipment for all employees, and “rigorous sanitization and cleaning of units and surfaces including loading carts (after every use).”

Right now, the company also has a huge 50% off sale on couches, as well as bedroom furniture and home accessories. The sale is happening on the store's website until June 17, 2020.

A couple of highlights from the sale include the Knislinge sofa, which IKEA has marked down from $499.00 to $349.00. 

There's also a selection of decorative pillows, rugs and light fixtures on sale, including a floor lamp for just $14.99 (original price $34.99).

With curbside pickup, filling your space with new treasures just got a lot more convenient.
