The original IKEA store was opened in Sweden in 1958. The first stores outside Sweden were opened in Norway (1963) and Denmark (1969). In the 1970s, stores expanded to other European countries, with the first store outside Scandinavia opening in Switzerland (1973), followed by Germany (1974). During the same decade, stores opened in other countries, including Japan, (1974), Australia, Hong Kong, Canada (1975), the Netherlands and Singapore (1978). Germany, with 46 stores, is IKEA's largest market, followed by the United States, with 38. IKEA currently operates 338 stores in 40 countries. However, the company has thus far not shown much of a presence in developing countries.[1] The location for the store is vitally important for IKEA as it should be near major roads, motorways and/or public transport.
