The chain has also offered customers the opportunity to request contact-free deliveries.

In a statement in March, Peter Jelkeby, Ikea's chief sustainability officer, said: "These are extraordinary times, and our absolute priority is to ensure the health and safety of our customers and co-workers.

"We have listened carefully to them, to the advice of the UK and Ireland governments, and have been closely monitoring the situation as this evolves.

"This is the right decision for us to take at this point.

"We look forward to welcoming our customers back to our stores in the future.

"As a company who cares deeply about people and the planet, our thoughts are with all those affected by the virus and those working tirelessly to care for them."
