Update 26 June 2020: We are pleased to share that our Swedish Food Market and Bistro are now open, while our IKEA Restaurant open on Monday, 29 June 2020 but with safety measures in place.
We are committed to opening in the safest way possible and as we slowly resume our food operations, we will be taking added steps to ensure the well-being of our customers and co-workers. For the time being, we will provide a selected menu, close our condiment stations and Bistro dining areas so as not to encourage crowding, and so forth. Do take note that Småland will remain closed until further notice. We thank everyone for their patience and we look forward to serving our customers again.

Full focus is on safe operations – no Swedish meatballs just yet!
After what will be 73 days of closure, IKEA Singapore is looking forward to welcoming customers back to our blue box stores on Friday, 19 June 2020. We are committed to opening in the safest way possible – and that means we must scale up our operations step-by-step.
Here are some of the steps we are taking:
★ Changes in Store Hours:
- Alexandra: 10am – 9pm, Sundays to Thursdays. 10am – 11pm, Fridays & Saturdays.
- Tampines: 11am – 9pm, Sundays to Thursdays. 11am – 11pm, Fridays & Saturdays.
★ Limited Visitors: we follow government guidelines on building capacity (1 person for every 10 square metres of floor area) and strictly control the numbers of people in stores and queues.
★ IKEA Food operations to open gradually in next two weeks: foodie fans must wait a while longer for IKEA meatballs and chicken wings! The IKEA Restaurants, Bistros and Swedish Food Market are closed for the time being.
★ Småland closed: for the safety of our youngest visitors.
★ Safe Entry: both co-workers and customers in our stores must wear masks at all times. We will use thermal temperature monitors and SafeEntry check-in for all.
We are all in this together
IKEA sends a big thanks to more than 100,000 people who shopped online with us during the long weeks over closure. It is clear many turned to IKEA to make life at home more comfortable and functional during this challenging time, and our online shopping platform is still there for our customers. We encourage people to shop from home if they can.
Weekday visits will be best for customers who wish to avoid delays and other inconveniences. IKEA is taking advice from Enterprise Singapore and we will do everything we can to keep our customers and co-workers safe at a time when COVID-19 remains a reality in our communities.
“We are so happy to be opening our doors again, but we are very clear on our priorities: safety first!” says Keith Oo, Deputy Store General Manager at IKEA Tampines. “Our IKEA stores cannot return to ‘normal’ just yet. COVID-19 remains a reality, and we all must do our part to prevent the virus from spreading.
“We will secure social distancing, masks, temperature checks and strict crowd controls. This is our time to be patient and kind with one another, and to work hand-in-hand with the good advice we are getting from health authorities. We are all in this together.”
We will update our IKEA websites and social channels with all the details. Stay tuned.
