Ikea Store Hyderabad: The restaurant will be open from 9:30 am to 10:30 pm every day.
The much-awaited Ikea store opened on Thursday in India. The Swedish furniture retailer's lndia debut has been much delayed because of local sourcing norms. The company, which has flagged import duties in India faces a big challenge as it tries to keep prices low. It has to source at least 30 per cent of its raw materials locally within five years of operations in the country as per regulation. However, Ikea is adapting to the needs of the Indian consumer and has made changes in prices as well as the variety of products on offer.
