Amassing thousands of customers monthly, IKEA Coventry is the company's iconic branch, located in the West Midlands, set to close due to "consistent losses".

Situated in the central business district of Coventry, this is a controversial and catastrophic decision - the company's closure would result in a loss of hundreds of thousands of customers as well as sales. The accessible location is a blow for local businesses dependant on footfall generated from IKEA customers as well as residents from many nearby regions such as Rugby and Nuneaton, dependant on the Coventry store to access the iconic restaurant and get hands-on with the renowned furniture.

Further implications of the unexpected closure include customers having to travel further distances to access stores, contradicting IKEA's sustainability views as the scarcity of stores would result in a higher carbon footprint due to the lack of accessibility for consumers.

350 employees will likely be made redundant as a result of this decision made by IKEA, so awareness can help make IKEA revert their decision and alleviate locals.

Please share this and raise awareness if you oppose IKEA's decision and would like it to stay in Coventry!
