Guadalajara could be site of Mexico’s first Ikea store

The Swedish furniture retailer has posted job openings in Mexico

“A little bit of Sweden” might be coming to Guadalajara next year, according to information published by retail furniture giant Ikea.

One of three Mexico job postings on the Ikea website lists a country communication and interior design manager who will be based in the Jalisco capital and be responsible for the first Ikea store in Mexico. The job begins early next year.

The company has had an office in Mexico City since 2017, the site says, and “we are determined to bring a little bit of Sweden to Mexico.”

The company has also posted the communications manager position on its LinkedIn account, where it explains that it is exploring the possibility of opening in Mexico, analyzing various formats in major cities.

“For now we can only say that we see enormous potential in Mexico for which Ikea will arrive as soon as possible.”

At present the company is focused on identifying the people who will form its team, the statement said.
