Ikea has bought Brighton’s main shopping centre and today unveiled plans to open a new mini Ikea store within it.

Ikea owner Ingka Centres has acquired the freehold for Brighton’s main shopping centre, Churchill Square, and will open a smaller-format city store in the former Debenhams unit.

The 6,000 sq m store, which will follow a similar layout to the retailer’s Hammersmith and Oxford Street stores, will display around 6,000 products. Around 3,000 of these will be available to take home, while the full range will be available for home delivery via electric vehicles.
