IKEA Canada is thrilled to make the next stop on its coast to coast expansion journey, with the announcement of a full-size store in London, Ontario. Scheduled to open in fall 2019, IKEA London will be the 15th IKEA store in Canada. It will be located at the intersection of Highway 401 and Wellington Road, in a new retail and commercial complex. The new store will be 270,000 square feet. It will feature a Showroom, Market hall, a Restaurant, SMALAND children’s play facility and offer customers a complete range of convenient services including home delivery, assembly, planning and exchanges.
With the opening of the new store, IKEA Canada will have a positive contribution to the local economy through the creation of 100-150 new jobs for IKEA London, in addition to the co-workers already working at the London Pick-up and order point, and the construction jobs generated over the course of the project. IKEA Canada looks forward to welcoming these additional co-workers to join the dedicated team currently working at the London Pick-up and order point.
In 2015, IKEA Canada announced its ambition to double the number of stores in Canada from 12 to 24 and expand from coast to coast. The London store will be the third stop on this journey. IKEA Halifax opened on September 27th, 2017 and IKEA Quebec City will open in late summer 2018.
