At 115,000 square feet, the store will be less than half the size of IKEA’s largest stores nationwide, but it will still be significantly bigger than the recently opened 17,500-square-foot, three-level Ikea Planning Studio in Manhattan.
The new store “will support a seamless omnichannel experience for customers,” said the company. It will feature thousands of take-with items as well as a display of furniture for delivery. In addition to home delivery, the location will also offer assembly and installation services.
The store will have a variety of food choices, offering shoppers a “modern taste of Sweden on the go,” and interactive spaces for families with children.
Javier Quiñones, president and chief sustainability officer of Ikea Retail U.S. said this was an exciting time for IKEA, which is ”passionate about life at home and energized by the opportunity to collaborate with New Yorkers to create a new experience that is both easy to access and shop.”
