The world and our customers’ lives are rapidly changing, and we’re taking bold steps to reach even more of the many people how and where they want to meet us.
We are excited to announce the opening of the first IKEA city center store in the U.S., which marks the beginning of our ongoing transformation and commitment to bringing the brand into the heart of urban areas. It is the latest example of how IKEA is reaching customers in new ways that are more accessible and more personalized.
The first ‘IKEA Planning Studio’ will open April 15 on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, located at 999 Third Avenue. This new IKEA experience will feature a wide range of smart home design solutions for small living spaces and New York City homes.
You can make purchases at the IKEA Planning Studio, but instead of carrying your items on the subway, all purchases made at the IKEA Planning Studio will be conveniently delivered to your home. It is significantly smaller than our beloved blue box stores but will represent a new way for customers to experience and interact with the IKEA brand for urban home design.
The IKEA Planning Studio will complement the already strong presence of IKEA stores in the New York market with our stores in Brooklyn, Elizabeth, Long Island and Paramus. Stay tuned for more news and updates.
