IKEA Memphis Progresses, to Open this Fall
The 271,000-square-foot future IKEA Memphis store is being built on 35 acres in the Wolfchase Corridor along the southwestern side of Interstate 40 in Memphis.
IKEA Memphis will feature nearly 10,000 exclusively designed items, 50 inspirational room settings, three model home interiors, a supervised children’s play area, and a 300-seat restaurant.
“With IKEA Memphis taking shape and the blue paneling now going up, we continue to be on track for a grand opening this fall,” said Lars Petersson, U.S. president of IKEA. “We hope to be enclosed fully within several months, and cannot wait to begin transforming the building’s interior to look like an IKEA store as well. We know there are many customers in the area who are excited for us to open, including more than 50,000 who currently are driving great distances to shop at our stores.”
Installation of IKEA’s blue panels has begun on its future Memphis store. That keeps the store on track to open this fall.
