Swedish home furnishings giant IKEA witnessed the huge response from customers as 40,000 people visited IKEA's first store in India in Hyderabad on the launch day.

The IKEA store was formally inaugurated by Telangana’s Industry Minister K. T. Rama Rao along with first customer Rajni Venugopal, IKEA Group CEO Jesper Brodin and Sweden’s Ambassador to India Klas Molin at HITEC City in Hyderabad on Thursday.

As reported in Hindustan Times, the store manager John Achillea cited that “With a huge crowd from across the city thronging the store in the evening, the IKEA staff found it a bit challenging to regulate the entry. There were also a few tense moments when some people tried breaking queues."
