Ikea’s first India store witnesses stampede-like situation at opening

About 40,000 people visited IKEA's first India store on its opening day here, a company spokesperson told IANS. The store's opening saw a stampede-like situation. About 10,000 customers had visited the store by 4 pm but the crowds swelled later as thousands of techies headed to the place while returning home from offices. “With a huge crowd from across the city thronging the store in the evening, the IKEA staff found it a bit challenging to regulate the entry .There were also a few tense moments when some people tried breaking queues,” store manager John Achillea said.
