Similar to the IKEA stores, the outlet will refresh its interior decor and furnishings periodically throughout the year.

That’s not the only unique thing about this store, however.

Basically, there’ll be QR codes in the different rooms of the store.

Scan them and you’ll be able to virtually change the products and styles in the room.

But that’s not the coolest part.

The new tool is said to be ready in the coming weeks.
