A few further outlet stores offer discounts on brand-name fashion, clothes, bags, accessories and shoes.
Ikea Fynd Factory Outlet Store in Älmhult
The Ikey Fynd in Älmhult sells new items. It should not be confused with the various bargain sections that are found in all Ikea stores where pre-assembled and returned items are sold at discount.
As with other regular factory outlet shops the variety of items on offer depends on the season and frequently change. In the Ikea Fynd some furniture is sold but the best offers are on household items, kitchenware, crockery and decorative items.
Discounts at the Ikea Fynd are big. Expect at least a third off on most items with bargain items going for 70% off or even less.
Other Outlet Stores at Ikea Älmhult
The Ikea Fynd outlet store is directly next to the large main Ikea Älmhult furniture store with the usual range as well as the Ikea restaurant at Handelsvägen 4, 343 81 Älmhult, next to road 23 at the east of town. A few further factory stores are in the same complex with space for future growth.
The other outlet stores here sell mostly clothes and shoes in multi-brand stores. Savings are big but the range available depends very much on the season.
The more interesting factory outlet store here is an official Iitala factory outlet store that sells mostly kitchenware and glass items by well-known Finnish designers such as Iitala, Arabica and Fisker. These items are often better quality, cheaper and more useful than “Scandinavian” stuff found in tourist souvenir shops.
