Ikea Looks to Open First Store in Indiana
November 11, 2015,
CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa.-Ikea is submitting plans to the City of Fishers, Ind. for a store that would increase the Swedish company’s presence in the Midwestern U.S. as its first store in the state.
Pending approvals, construction of Ikea Fishers could begin as early as next summer, with an opening in Fall 2017.
Located approximately 15 miles northeast of downtown Indianapolis, the 296,000-square-foot proposed Ikea store and its approximately 1,000 parking spaces would be built on 35 acres along the eastern side of Interstate 69, just south of the E. 116th Street exit. Store plans reflect the same architectural design for which Ikea stores are known. IKEA also will evaluate potential on-site power generation to complement its current U.S. renewable energy presence at nearly 90 percent of its U.S. locations.
