Long queues were filmed outside the IKEA store in Wembley, London on Monday, as it opened its doors to customers for the first time since closing in late March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
One customer mentioned waiting for more than an hour outside the store, only to find out that some departments of the store, such as the garden department, were out of stock for certain items.
«It was quite far a journey for us, about an hour and a half. So, being greeted to — I should've known better — being greeted to a one hour queue, on top of the fact that they're limited in stock in garden furniture. Yeah, I should've known better, really,» he said.
The location in Wembley was one of a reported 19 other locations across the UK that reopened on June 1, since the furniture giant closed all locations on March 20.
