However, after a few studies has been conducted regarding the more suitable next Baltic States to open the next IKEA store after Lithuania, it was announced that the next IKEA store will open in Riga, Latvia instead of Estonia due to the small market size in Estonia, despite IKEA’s plan to expanding IKEA stores to all 3 Baltic States including Estonia within 2019.
