IKEA to reopen 19 stores in England, Northern Ireland on June 1

May 22 (Reuters) - Swedish furniture brand IKEA will reopen 19 of its stores in England and Northern Ireland from June 1 with measures to ensure social distancing among shoppers, it said in a statement on Friday.​

The furniture retailer had temporarily closed all UK and Ireland stores from March 20 as a precautionary measure against the coronavirus outbreak.

It said last month it aimed to start reopening shops in Europe in May.

IKEA has 22 stores in the UK, according to a statement in February.
