IKEA announced its plans to build a Las Vegas location, to be opened in the summer of 2016.
So far, the retailer has submitted its plans to Nevada's Clark County. The 351,000-sq.-ft. store would be located in the Spring Valley area, approximately 13 miles southwest of downtown Las Vegas.
“We look forward to continue growing our western U.S. presence with IKEA Las Vegas,” said IKEA U.S. CFO Rob Olson. “This accessible location would provide the already 101,000 Las Vegas-area customers a store of their own and introduce the unique IKEA shopping experience to other consumers throughout Clark County and Southern Nevada.”
The proposed location would be built on 26 acres along Interstate-215 at Durango Drive, near the intersection with Sunset Road.
Over 500 jobs are expected to be created during the construction phase, and 300 permanent retail slots would be added when the store opens.
Its nearby store count includes existing locations in Covina, California; Tempe, Arizona; or Draper, Utah.
