IKEA is considering extending its operations in Israel and opening up a branch in Ramallah, in the Palestinian Authority, and in Be’er Sheva and Jerusalem, the Hebrew-language newspaper Yediot Acharonot reported.
Matthew Bronfman, who holds the IKEA franchise for Israel, reported said that “we’ll be happy to help establish the store” in Ramallah.
The planned stores for Be’er Sheva and Jerusalem would be consistent with the format of IKEA’s new format of opening “IKEA point” branches, which are one-tenth as large as the chain’s regular outlets.
