Mexico has been late to get an Ikea. And when it finally came, the Yucatán Peninsula was left out of Ikea’s delivery zone. Until now. 

A green banner appeared recently on the Ikea home page announcing: “Now we have delivery services in Veracruz, Quintana Roo and Yucatán!”

Parcel delivery is 100 pesos, and larger shipments by truck are 600 pesos. 

The Swedish home and ready-to-assemble furniture brand increased its reach across Mexico since announcing its arrival in 2019. The pandemic has slowed its progress in building brick-and-mortar stores, but today there are big-box branches in Puebla and Mexico City. 

It already included Monterrey, Nuevo León, and Saltillo, Coahuila to its shipping areas.

The first Ikea store in Mexico opened in Mexico City in April 2019, just as the pandemic broke. The Mexican online store opened in October 2020. Both operations were far more popular than expected and Ikea was initially overwhelmed by public demand, struggling to keep items in stock.  

The world’s largest furniture retailer, known for modern and inexpensive designs, was founded by 17-year-old Ingvar Kamprad in 1943 and has 422 stores in more than 50 countries. 

No word yet on whether Ikea’s famous meatballs can be delivered along with a Songesand bed or a Jokkmokk dining set.
