Pending the land purchase, permits and demolition of on-site buildings, construction of the future Ikea Merriam will begin this coming summer.
Ikea Merriam will feature nearly 10,000 exclusively designed items, 50 inspirational room-settings, three model home interiors, a supervised children's play area, and a 450-seat restaurant. More than 500 jobs are expected to be created during the construction phase, and the retailer plans to hire approximately 300 employees.
