IKEA Doha opening confirmed for March 11th

IKEA Doha has told Doha News that it will open its doors to the general public on the morning of March 11th.

The news follows the invitation via email of hundreds of families in Qatar to a “family day” trial run at the store next week.

Invites for the event seem to have been sent to people who had registered to take part in an earlier trial day, which was canceled on short notice in January, apparently due to issues with Civil Defense clearance.

Those inspection delays led to a postponement of the planned Jan. 30th opening date, which was in itself a delay – IKEA Qatar had originally hoped to open its doors in December of last year.

IKEA is located on Al Shamal Road just north of Doha and is the anchor tenant of the upcoming Doha Festival City project.

Are you excited about the opening? Thoughts?
