Winnipeg, Manitoba — Ikea Canada has obtained site approval for a 350,000-square-foot store here to open between late 2011 and early 2013.
The store, Ikea's first in the Winnipeg market, will be at Kenaston Boulevard and Sterling Lyon Parkway. Construction will begin once the retailer receives approval for needed infrastructure changes.
According to the Sweden-based home furnishings giant, construction will take about 18 months.
"We are happy to be able to move forward with our expansion into the Winnipeg market," said Kerri Molinaro, president of Ikea Canada. "We will look forward to serving the Winnipeg market and are confident that we will have a positive impact on the community through job creation and service contracts."
Headquartered in Burlington, Ontario, Ikea Canada currently operates 11 stores in the country.
