Join us for a special sneak preview of the new IKEA in Columbus! We will hear from 3 IKEA representatives, as well as the developer, about the many aspects of the project. We will then have the opportunity to tour the nearly-complete store.
Under construction on 33 acres in the Polaris Centers of Commerce development, the 354,000-square-foot future IKEA Columbus and its 1,200 parking spaces are being built at the northeastern corner of Interstate-71 and Gemini Place. IKEA will be installing one of Ohio’s largest rooftop solar arrays, consistent with the IKEA renewable energy presence at 90% of its U.S. locations.
In addition to 500 jobs created by construction, IKEA will generate significant tax revenue for state and local governments. When IKEA Columbus opens on June 7, the new store will welcome the newly hired 250 coworkers to the IKEA family of more than 14,000 in the United States and 155,000 globally.
IKEA recently announced plans to install three Blink® electric vehicle (EV) charging stations.
Deadline to Register is May 12!
