– It’s crowded with us and we see many refurbished people in the warehouses, “says communications adviser Charles Michaelsen at Ikea in a press release.
In ten years, Ikea’s revenue has increased from 6.3 billion euros in 1998 to a staggering 21.2 billion euros in 2008. Over the past four years, growth has been steady.
Selects the cheap
Michaelsen does not dare to predict too much about what the future will look like at the department store, but past experience indicates that there is not much to worry about: When the economy tightens, we cut out the luxury, but not the cheap goods.

The director of the Møbelringen store at Alna in Oslo, Laurentio Buzatu, is optimistic about the sale before Christmas.
– Yes, certainly, assuming most of the bad news has now come out and that the measures proposed are being launched, Buzatu says.
He believes the shops that have only had winds in the sails during the boom are the ones who are struggling now.
– The serious ones who are sober, who think about both winds and headwinds – and who are turning smoothly – will manage, Buzatu believes.
The leader has noticed that sales have fallen back this fall, but now the trade is on its way back.
Buzatu seems a somewhat more subdued purchasing power as we see now is healthy.
In fact, I’m looking forward to waking up and not just spending the money, “Buzatu said.
– Tougher times
CEO Nils Sund in the furniture ring Skeidar says that they notice the financial crisis.
– It is noteworthy that the positive trend in commodity trade has stopped this fall. Our industry experiences more tough times than most years ago, says Sund.
