World’s biggest Ikea store – level 1

01-12-2021 15:00

Ikea is a Swedish company. It makes furniture. It also makes things to decorate homes. The company has more than 460 stores in 60 countries. It just opens its biggest store in the world. The store is 68,000 square meters.

It is in Manila, the capital of the Philippines. The country’s economy is growing. People have more money. They can buy more things. Ikea wants to open a store there for a long time. The coronavirus delays the plan.

Next year, Ikea will open more stores. The company will open more stores in Asia and in South America, too. The first store in South America will be in Chile.

Difficult words: decorate (to make something look nice), economy (all the activities that people do to make, sell, and buy things and services), delay (to make something happen later than is the plan).
