Burlington, Ontario (Canada) — IKEA Canada is planning a full-size store for Quebec City. Scheduled to open in summer 2018, the IKEA Quebec City store will be the 14th IKEA store in Canada. The store will take roughly 14-16 months to build once the ground has been broken in spring 2017 and will be approximately 340,000 square feet in size.
“It was clear from the first day we opened the Pickup and Order point that Quebec City residents are passionate supporters of the IKEA brand,” says IKEA Canada’s acting president, David McCabe. “We look forward to welcoming many more customers to the new IKEA store when it opens in summer 2018.”
The IKEA Quebec City store will be LEED-certified when it opens. With a particular focus on energy and waste avoidance, there will be waste management equipment installed to maximize material recycling and diversion from landfill. Additionally, every single light source throughout the store will use LED lighting.
In November 2015, IKEA Canada announced a coast-to-coast expansion plan to double its store count from 12 to 24 stores in the next 10 years. The Quebec City store is the second stop on this journey. The retailer announced a new store for Halifax earlier this year.
IKEA is a leading home furnishing retailer with 375 stores in more than 50 countries worldwide. IKEA Canada has 12 stores, an e-commerce virtual store, 6 Pickup and Order points in Quebec City and southern Ontario, and two Collection Points in Halifax and Saskatoon. The company also recently announced plans to open stores in Halifax and Quebec City. For more information, visit: www.IKEA.ca.
