IKEA closing earlier on Sundays

Beginning on January 6, IKEA shops in Hungary are closing at 7 p.m. on Sundays, two hours earlier than the 9 p.m. closing time valid in 2018, the subsidiary of the Swedish furniture retailer announced on Wednesday.

IKEA outlets will be open between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Sundays.

The new opening time will be tested for a three-month period and the final decision will be made after feedback from customers.

The shorter opening hours do not mean any dismissals, as labour will be reshuffled to otherwise busy hours, IKEA underlined.
