IKEA plans Grand Prairie store
IKEA has submitted plans to the city of Grand Prairie for what would be the Swedish retailer’s second North Texas store and fourth in the state.
Pending approvals, construction of IKEA Grand Prairie would begin next summer, with an opening in the fall of 2017, according to a news release. The company’s Texas stores are located in Frisco, Houston and Round Rock.
The Grand Prairie location would span 293,000 square feet on 32 acres along the eastern side of State Highway 161 and Mayfield Road, north of Interstate 20.
In addition to the more than 500 expected construction jobs, more than 300 employees would join the company when the new store opens, the company said. IKEA Grand Prairie would provide annual sales and property tax revenue for local governments and schools.
IKEA operates more than 370 stores in 47 countries, including 41 in the United States. More information is available at IKEA-USA.com.
