IKEA will open its first branch in Cyprus on September 6th in Nicosia. It will be located in the Shacolas Emporium Park in Latsia on the old Nicosia-Limassol road. I am yet to see the IKEA brochure widely available in Cyprus, but i heard that the prices are very attractive, in some cases even comparable to the prices in US and that means only one thing – very cheap. Whether you are shopping or window-shopping inside IKEA, it is a great experience. I remember, when i was in San Jose and we visited IKEA to buy an energy-saving bulb, we were shocked to see the different varieties of bulbs available. So shocked and confused that we came back not knowing which one to buy!
Update: I have already been to IKEA two times and it is a wonderful place to spend time and I always end up buying some stuff or the other. If you are driving from Limassol, take the roundabout when Nicosia (don’t go over the bridge, but under it to the roundabout), then take the last exit (turn right) and then turn left at the first roundabout. You will then reach the backside of IKEA where you will find signs to reach the parking.
