IKEA Breaks Ground Future Memphis Store, Opening Fall 2016

by Katie Lee

Memphis, Tenn. — IKEA has officially broken ground on its future Memphis store, scheduled to open in fall 2016. It will be the Swedish home furnishings retailer’s first store in Tennessee.

The 271,000-square-foot future IKEA Memphis, including approximately 1,000 parking spaces, will be built on 35 acres in the Wolfchase Corridor along the southwestern side of Interstate-40 near the Germantown Parkway exit. IKEA has contracted with Linkous Construction to build the project, and store plans reflect the same unique architectural design for which IKEA stores are known worldwide. In addition, IKEA will evaluate potential on-site power generation to complement its current U.S. goal of a renewable energy presence at nearly 90% of its U.S. locations.

There are currently more than 370 IKEA stores in 47 countries, including 41 in the U.S. For more information, visit IKEA-USA.com.
