Ikea plan to move into the world of electronic goods
Following a hook-up with some Chinese manufacturers, the Swedish company will be flogging TV’s wireless sound systems and Blu-ray and CD/DVD players in addition to tables and shelves that have names.
They’re planning to sell combination units, containing storage space as well as dedicted space for the electronic gizmos and gadgetry. A guide price of about £600 for a combination bench unit, TV and speaker system has been mooted by the curious Swedes.
It’s early days for the venture though and only five European stores will initially carry the added range. Meatballs will continue to be sold everywhere.
