IKEA does not lose hope to return to the Russian market. The company intends to pay salaries to employees in Russia until August, and not until June, as mentioned earlier.
“We continue to monitor, analyze, look at what is happening, and will make decisions as we move forward,” says the official position of one of the world’s largest retail chains for the sale of furniture and home goods.
IKEA explained the forced exit from the Russian market, which is temporary, to problems with supplies and a break in supply chains. The Ministry of Industry and Trade is confident that the Dutch production and retail trade group is looking for opportunities to return to Russia.
In mid-April, IKEA and Zara made a statement to Russian citizens about return in foreseeable future.
