Shop you’ve never heard of nicknamed ‘little Ikea’ with bargain prices launches major new service – fans will love it | The Sun

A SHOP you've probably never heard of nicknamed "little Ikea" has launched a major new service.

Søstrene Grene is a Danish retailer chain founded in 1973 by husband and wife Inger Grene and Knud Cresten Vaupell Olsen.

Like Ikea, the shop sells homeware and furniture designed in a typical Scandinavian fashion.

In what will be good news for shoppers, Søstrene Grene has launched its own website – and it is now live.

It stocks a wide range of homeware, furniture, kitchen products, season decorations, gifting and craft pieces all for customers to get their hands on.

Here's a list of some examples we've seen online that Søstrene Grene is selling and prices start from as little as 40p:

If you're ordering large furniture pieces then you'll also need to pay shipping costs – the amount will depend on the size of the order and location.

Shoppers can expect their items to arrive between three to six working days.

Søstrene Grene does not currently offer an option to order to one of its 12 stores across the UK.

If you can't order online then you might be able to pop into one of its stores.

It is also worth shopping around elsewhere for the best deal as you may be able to find something cheaper.

In comparison, Ikea and other stores like Dunelm or Homebase often have items going for a bargain price.

In June, Ikea slashed the prices of many items in a huge summer sale.

The retailer was offering hundreds of discounts on home essentials for a limited time only both online and in-store.

While Homebase launched a huge gardening sale and prices started from just £1.

The homeware chain already operates across 12 UK stores in:

  • Southside, Wandsworth
  • Eden Centre, High Wycombe
  • Parkway, Newbury
  • Brewery Quarter, Cheltenham
  • Victoria Centre, Nottingham
  • Derbion, Derby
  • Cambridge Street, Sheffield
  • George Street, Altrincham
  • Cross Street, Manchester
  • Grosvenor, Chester
  • Kingston Upon Thames
  • Bracknell

It's also got plans to open a couple more shops later this year.

Victoria Place in Woking will later welcome the Danish store by opening a brand new 4,673 square foot shop and the first of its kind in Surrey.

The chain is also set to open a brand new store at the Royal Priors Shopping Centre in Lemmington Spa too.

At the time, Norma Jacob and Richard Power, UK joint venture partners at Søstrene Grene, said: "Søstrene Grene has been undergoing a wide expansion across the UK, particularly across the south of England, so we are excited to be able to announce that we will be opening in Woking later this year.

"Victoria Place is a brilliant location in the heart of Woking and we’re looking forward to introducing our brand to a new audience, marking our first store launch in the region."
