Via Amazon’s online stores in countries such as the United Kingdom, Germany, France and Italy, consumers can now order Billy bookcases, Kallax shelving units and Lack tables online. Unfortunately, the famous meatballs aren’t available online, but you can order its cream sauce for 3.99 euros. Most of the items are also available on Amazon Prime, which means members can receive free, two-day shipping.
In an earlier interview Loof said: “I leave unsaid on which platforms, but we will test and pilot, to see ‘what does this mean, what does digital shopping look like in the future and what do digital shopping centers mean?’”
