(Inside Manila) Almost everyone is hyped about the news that Ikea, the Swedish furniture giant, is finally opening its first Philippine store in Manila. And it seems like Pinoys don't need to guess anymore as a report finally confirmed the first IKEA store in the country will be at SM Mall of Asia.

According to a Facebook note published by Philippine Star on Sunday, March 13, the store will be between the SMX Convention Center and at the MOA Arena—specifically at the open car park between SMX and the Arena where it will have its standalone warehouse.

Ikea is said to have a long-term lease agreement with the SM Group. Moreover, the report confirms its second store will be opened beside SM Fairview for the Quezon City and other northern areas.

Pinoys are more than ready for you, Ikea!
