It has been reported that IKEA, the Swedish home furniture company, is looking to open shops in Puerto Rico. Officials from IKEA were in Puerto Rico last week searching for locations in the San Juan metropolitan area.
IKEA is the world's largest furniture maker. The Company, based in Stockholm, has plans to set up three stores, and a central warehouse.
The report said IKEA is expecting to start operations in Puerto Rico by the end of the year. IKEA had 655 million customers last year, from its 287 stores. IKEA employs 131,000 people in 41 countries.
UPDATE: IKEA opens first store in Bayamón, Puerto Rico.
