Fake IKEA store ‘an exact copy’ | News.com.au
Ikea said it had reported the lookalike store to its worldwide franchiser, which was “dealing with this matter together with their legal counsel.”
“Inter Ikea Systems … the owner of the Ikea concept, sees it as very important to protect the intellectual property rights,” the company said in a statement.According to Swedish media, the 1000-square-metre store is nearly identical to Ikea’s outlets down to its cafeteria, which served Chinese food instead of Swedish staples.
