The world’s favorite Swedish flatpack furniture brand will start allowing pets into their Thailand shops starting June 6, according to a social media announcement from the flatpack giant.
There are rules of course—it’s Ikea afterall. Cats and dogs are welcome as long as they weigh no more than 15 kilograms, and those in a stroller require a zipper to put the fluffy friends away. 
All pets must be supervised at all times by their owners, and they are not allowed in food areas. Owners are responsible for any damage overzealous pets may cause. Be advised that Ikea does not have any pet-sitting services, so you’ll be shopping with your pet at all times. 
These new rules apply to the Ikea in Bangna and Bang Yai as well as the Ikea in Phuket on Tuesday next week. 
Bangkok has long been looking forward to a new midtown Ikea where the Swedish retailer looks to open at the long under-construction Emsphere by BTS Phrom Phong. Ikea first opened at Mega Bang Na before adding another location at Bang Yai.
