IKEA, the Swedish home furnishing major, informed that it is temporarily shutting Hyderabad retail facility from Saturday to implement additional safety measures amid the current coronavirus crisis.

The furniture major tweeted, "In light of the current Covid-19 situation, we are temporarily closing IKEA Hyderabad store to implement additional safety measures."

In addition, the company sent mails to its registered customers regarding the temporary closure of the Hyderabad outlet.

The IKEA mail informed "In the light of the current Covid-19 situation and to strengthen the safety and well-being of our customers and co-workers, we want to take all our experiences and learning during the last weeks to further build a safer and an even better shopping experience in our store."

However, IKEA's online store will be open for customers and the recently started contactless Click and Collect delivery services will remain free for the duration that the store remains shut.

IKEA had shut its Hyderabad store in March 2020 to ensure the safety of its employees and customers amid the coronavirus outbreak.
