IKEA will open its Memphis furniture store on Wednesday, December 14, 2016.

The store will open its doors to the public for the first time at 9 a.m. that day. However, the store will allow customers to begin lining up in front of the store on Monday, December 12.

The 271,000 square-foot store is located on Germantown Parkway near Wolfchase Galleria and Interstate 40. It will feature nearly 10,000 exclusively designed items, 50 room-settings, three model home interiors, a children's play area, and a restaurant. Plus, the rooftop features Tennessee's largest solar array.

“We are thrilled by the excellent construction progress made to date, and believe we can complete the remaining milestones and interior build-up by mid-December.  Besides furnishing our store, we also are focused on continuing recruitment and training of all the coworkers joining the IKEA family,” store manager Trisha Bevering said.  “We look forward to introducing Mid-South customers to a whole new way of shopping for the home.”
