The beginning

Ingvar Kamprad actually started IKEA in 1943 initially selling miscellaneous small trinkets like pens, wallets, picture frames, and watches. He used money that his father gave him as a reward for doing well in school to buy items in bulk and sell them for fair prices while still making a profit. If you’re wondering how the store got its name, here’s the story.

IKEA offered us a few photos of what the very first store looked like. You get a small glimpse into how it used to run and how much the exterior has changed over the years.
